Well yes, I would love to. However, I'm not sure I have the know how yet. I have plenty of experience in programming, but more db and interface stuff, I also don't have any specific experience with FreeBSD development. Plus, why invent the wheel. CVSup is already written, and the FreeBSD core team has control of the source tree, and what gets installed. If someone can save me some time in searching, where is the source that controls what is installed by FreeBSD? Also, anyone on a first name basis with John Polstra? I have submitted an email to the "comments" address on their web page, but I would be willing to bet it will get swept under the rug. And I'm not sure learning Modula-3 is on my agenda right now either. I do hear what you are saying though. Trust me, I love this environment where so many people run into a blocking point, writes some to fix the problem, and then submit it to share with everyone else, and I would love to contribute in any way I can, with whoever might actually have more knowledge on this matter than I do. But also, these are projects currently in someone else's court right now, and I don't know the players. I realize, as I mentioned in another post, I may well be the only person that really wants this functionality. I welcome comments though about what other people think on the matter, in general or specific terms. Or any information about what future plans there are on modifications to the install process. And if this is not the forum for this, I would appreciate being told where the best place to bring this up would be. I checked the archives on freebsd-config, and it would appear to be a largely dead list. Thanks.
