As a sidenote, I saw the refreshing lack of mergemaster from
upgrade instructions. I *loathe* that part of FreeBSD upgrades, dumbly
OK'ing a hundredsome one line RCS id diffs and then dumbly OK'ing a
relevant change...

There are some problems though with the fully automatic upgrade of /etc.
Looking back, it was well discussed in a lenghty thread on bugs@ a year
before. What's the current situation? How config file upgrade is handled

not at all :/

*I*'m still using mergemaster, because otherwise you don't get updated config files (for ssh or inetd, for instance). IMO we desperately need a wicked tool which do the right thing[tm]. something with three-way merges and stuff...
