Re: Eh?

cvsup /etc/cvsupfile. That combined with portupgrade, make, sh, and cron will keep a system up to date. Security advisories are available from the freebsd web page. :D

'course having an automated system running around replacing binaries does have it's pitfalls, and drawbacks. YMMV.

Well, I wouldn't full automate it. I don't do that on Linux either. I run RHN as a monitor and let it tell me when there are patches, then I review what they are and decide to have it install or not. No way would I let something auto-update my systems like that. TiVo gets away with it, but not my machines. ;-) I don't let Windows do it either.
