If your intention is to know when 7.1-RELEASE is available and possibly
track security advisories afterwards, it is the correct list:
Well, my intention is to be updated even on the prerelease. As I
understand from the answers, it might be somewhat ambiguous. Do you
recommend that I update once a week for example. I understand that not
all modifications will affect me, some will of course others will not
Depends what you want. Everything that goes on RELENG_7 branch currently, is a
bug fix. Each bug fix, has the risk of introducing a regression bug.
If you want to part of the process that tests this PRERELEASE and report any
bugs, confirming bugfixes etc, then you should track RELENG_7. Best way to do
that is to csup your system in the daily periodic(7). Then you can see if any
fixes have been comitted, and rebuild your system.
If you simply want to know if your system still works, subscribe to announce
to know when to stop testing and to build the final release, and build
whenever you have time.
The script below my sig, adds csup to daily, when adding
daily_csup_enable="YES" to /etc/periodic.conf and putting the proper csup
file in the proper loc and/or setting the variables in /etc/periodic.conf.
Thanks! I'll try it out.
