I have no opinion about the original diff but changes should never be prevented because of sysmerge(8). sysmerge(8) allows you to merge changes later on and can even run non interactively if you have a big amount of machines to handle -- if anything sysmerge(8) could be improved to ease things for the admin but I will repeat it again, in no case, it should be taken into consideration when wanting to modify something. -- Antoine
