Where is documented? Curently source based upgraded suported to last stable direct from 7.0. Last supported release now is 9.3. Upgrade to 7.0 supported from 5.3. Upgrade to 5.3 supported from, hmm, I think last 3-STABLE (or any 3.x?). Upgrade from 2.x to 3.x is aout-elf upgrade. As result, source upgrade supported in 3 step upgrade from any current elf release to last stable. Because ALL source history preserved. I think preserving all binary packages from previos releases is imposible. > It is not a burden that RE@ should have to deal with. Please distinguish 'not supported' and 'prohibited'. This position reduce to 'lost time to system upgrade? format C: and install any other OS with more liberal upgrade policy'. Time to system upgrade may be lost by multiple reasons, for example -- lost previos staff. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
