This might be a dumb question, but I was wondering if a king of "stable branch" existed for the ports tree. Under OpenBSD I think you can follow the ports tree stable branch so you only get security updates for your ports.
This does not seem possible under FreeBSD, if I understood correctly only the current branch (tag=.) is used for ports; at least this is what I always used...
Now, here are my questions about that:
- is there a way to only get the security updates for ports ? (are security updates for ports included in the FreeBSD security advisories)
- when upgrading to a new release, can I use the release branch for ports ?
The reason I'm asking this is that I don't want to update my ports everytime a new version comes out... except if it has a security issue.
Thanks for reading me.
