The idea floated at BSDCam was to have a package that would install a pristine copy of the /etc files under /var/db/etcupdate and prompt the user to then use that tool to update or install their configs. That should provide a nice compromise between having the files available from pkgs and not enforcing a specific mechanism (tools, not policy) to update /etc. Cheers, Matthew
