Re: 5.1 release?
I wrote a small script for automated update on NetBSD systems a while ago.
With a nice menu or simply through arguments...
You can find it there :
I just updated the last version that i used recently. should be revision 50.
Feel free to do whatever you want with it, as long as you dont sue me for
And yes updating via CVS takes time...
If anyone is interested in helping me maintain such a tool, let me know.
The docbooks that goes along with it, start to be a bit old as well.
Anyway, I hope it will be useful to others ;-)
