The cvs log mentions an "upgrade script". What/where is that?

This seems unnecessarily complex and seems to be missing several steps.
Worked well for me when I was using it for generating the patches for
If I were you I'd diff the 9.3.2 and 9.3.5 releases from ISC, clean out all
the RCS cruff, apply it to src/dist/bind and see what happens.
Many conflicts over eight files.
Yeah, that would be right. I'd guess that these would be due to
backported security patches and/or local patches that we have done that
haven't been pushed up stream. I usually manually deal with the
conflicts or in the case of the security patches I revert the local ones
and then apply the diff from the updated version (which includes the
security fix). This is just a fact of updates when we fall a few
So instead I removed / fixed RCS ident. Copied files into place.
Ok, I haven't done it that way before but let's see how it goes :)
Here is a patch for testing. I built and I am running it on NetBSD/i386
Thanks very much for that I'll do some testing and we'll get it
submitted as a pullup.
Also that has bogus files and windows source that can probably be removed.
AFAIK we typically don't remove anything before a cvs import is done
into dist/. BTW what do you mean by 'bogus files' ?
Updating this is way too complex. Maybe using the scripts and instructions
found in bind2netbsd and the files it references would be better. But
they are missing steps (like should a "cvs up" be done between the steps
in the different scripts?).
That I don't know. Like I said I've used these scripts before to
generate patches and they have saved a lot of leg work for me.
