It is too limiting. I might be on current because I have my *own* work I am doing on current. You talk as if the only development on -current is things that "other developers have officially committed" to -current. The fact that I have not committed some work to -current does not give anyone the right to go hog-wild with an 'rm' hanging off a blind 'find' command. It still boils down that you do not know why the files are there. I don't see why you're so determined to cause even more hassle for people trying to "do the right thing" and develop their changes on -current. >The -current branch is for FreeBSD developers, or volunteers >brave enough to test the -current branch. > >As such, don't be surprised if it wipes your hard disk clean. Don't be surprised if you have even fewer -current testers. Don't be surprised if we get to Novemeber of this year, and -current is just as unstable and untested as it was last year. Don't be surprised if we never manage to release -current, because it will never be sufficiently tested. -- Garance Alistair Drosehn = [EMAIL PROTECTED] Senior Systems Programmer or [EMAIL PROTECTED] Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute or [EMAIL PROTECTED] To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
