Qs about -current
I'm by no means an OpenBSD guru but I can definitely get by. That said,
I've been "cautioned" by a far more experienced colleague not to upgrade
my home firewall to -current if I can avoid it, as it isn't really the
same as a stable release.
The problem is, there's a change in -current that I really, really would
like to have. Basically, it's the change to pf that allows for a
per-rule limit on the number of state table entries a pf.conf rule can
I have three questions:
1) Is it generally safe to upgrade to -current? I'd appreciate hearing
any bad experiences but I guess I'm just wondering if it's that
difficult a thing to do.
2) Is there any chance of just getting the above-mentioned change into
my pf without upgrading to -current?
3) Does -current go straight into a release (ie: 3.2) or is there some
sort of "stable" snapshot I can upgrade to instead?
If my questions can be answered somewhere on the OpenBSD site (or
elsewhere), please feel free to fob me off with a link. I've looked but
haven't been able to find anything as yet.
