Re: -current "sane to try" yet?
The developers have lives of their own, in addition to working
on OpenBSD stuff. If they don't answer a question, well, they
only have so many hours in a day in which to do things.
As for what you did with -current, thats entirely reasonable, if
I understand you. Waiting a bit to see if things change after a
problem is a good idea. Given that -current is always a work
in progress, your snapshot of -current might have caught
things during a series of updates that are incomplete.
Several times now, I've pulled down changes that had compile
problems. Looking at the src change list showed that I didn't
yet have the complete set of something and waiting for the
mirror to get its next refresh fixed things.
