I just finished upgrading my SparcClassic from 2.5 to 2.6.
To upgrade /etc/, I downloaded both the etc25.tar.gz and the
etc26.tar.gz sets, extracted them, and ran a diff -u over the
resulting trees. This made my upgrading of /etc/ extremely
It might be a good idea for the project to include such a patch
as a part of the distribution, and including instructions on
applying it. (I removed a couple of non-needed sections, and
used `patch(1)' to apply it. resolving a pair of rejections
later, I was in business.)
Generate a patch set between, the previous and current revisions
of the distribution, and include the patch set either with the
distribution, or on an ftp server.
