hello all,

I have recently been mulling over an article which proposes an abridged
set of steps for updating the system.


alias rebuild   'cd /usr/src && make update && make world && make kernel &&

in a nutshell, the author proposes the following steps:

1) rebuild
2) answer the mergemaster prompts
3) reboot
4) all done

the method i employ requires several additional steps -- mergemaster -p,
a reboot to test kernel (not strictly required, from what i understand),
and booting to single user mode for install world.

i am wondering what might be the hazards of trying the abridged approach.
would be grateful to hear from anyone with an informed position on the

thank you,
