A new upgrade method

Remember my post about a new upgrade script?  tse, the author, has happily added in a bunch of suggestions.  I’m intermittently traveling and can’t do anything to test it for days yet – but I’d love to see others try it out.

The bugs issue tracking versions is here: #3197.  Can you, dear reader, try it out?  Do an in-place upgrade on your version, or even a test install with a VM?  I want to see what happens in the wild.

  1. I for one would love to see a binary upgrade mechanism for DragonflyBSD. I’m a big fan of syspatch for OpenBSD or freebsd-update for FreeBSD. While the source based upgrade method isn’t overly challenging, it is very time consuming. Thank you for this work.
