What I do not yet understand, though, is what the process would be to update a jail once you decide to update the hosting system. My presumption is that you are not well-advised to be running a jails userland that differs from the parent; but what would be the most secure (and convenient) way to update? (Maybe this question also might be worthy of addition to the handbook).

The make installworld/distribution steps you used to create it should
also put the updated versions of all the files in there if you do them
again with the new system.

I've never run a jail, so I may be wrong.
