:What exactly should be in /etc/.release? Only "1.10" or "1.11" would not
:be enough IMO.
:I'm mostly concerned about people tracking HEAD and harming their
:systems because they do make upgrade before installworld with a new file
:list at some time where it removes some sensitive stuff which needs the
:_really latest_ HEAD installed.
That's a good point. Ok... but move that installed list of files
out of /var/db and into /etc. In fact, lets create an /etc/upgrade
directory and stow it in there. /etc/upgrade/Makefile*.inc,
/etc/upgrade/release, etc.... might be a good framework for any
future features we add to the upgrade system.
