If I understand right, at the transition from stable/11 to release/12.0 and stable/12, stable/11 is supposed to be able to build 12 as part of a source based upgrade. (Normally the most recent release/11.? should be able to as well? The oldest supported release/11.? as well?) So at certain times one direction of mixing seems to be supported for specific versions in order to allow progressing forward. That does not mean that the other direction is supported.

The other direction seems to be the general intent. Even having stable/11 try to build, say, stable/10 would seem to be backwards on the general principles if I've understood right. head/ is not actually essential to the issue. === Mark Millard markmi at dsl-only.net _______________________________________________ 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"
