Hi David !

First of all, thank you for your help.

This is what I'm trying to do as well. Mostly because I want pf from 
the main source tree and not the pkgsrc's pflkm. 

And while I'm at it, pf is only in the -current in the source tree, 
not in the "netbsd-2" branch tag ?

But as i understand it that is not supposed to be "safe", right ? 
Regardless, a lot of people seem to be running it like that anyways. 
Or is it the case "everything works, but if it don't, fix it don't 
complain" ?

So if I wanna sync with the -release and the patches released since, the
command is:

	cvs checkout -A -P -rnetbsd-2 src

as opposed to getting -current via

	cvs checkout -A -P src

Thanks again
