:Is there an upgrade path from 2.2.0?
:I found a HOWTO page on the website, but that was talking about CVS..

    Generally speaking the upgrade path for someone running 2.2.0 is
    to download the sources and do a make buildworld/buildkernel/
    installworld/installkernel/upgrade sequence.

    Our website docs do need to be updated, as we use GIT now and
    no longer use CVS.  The 'man build' manual page is probably
    the best resource.

    /usr has a Makefile in it that gives you convenient targets for
    downloading and maintaining a copy of the source.  I just realized,
    though, that the Makefile defaults to using the master branch,
    which is the head of the development tree instead of the 2.2
    branch.  You would want to do a 'git checkout DragonFly_RELEASE_2_2'
    after the initial download to get onto the correct branch.
