- rD53598: Update the version of -CURRENT in the porters handbook
Compile the Porters Handbook
I think we have a variable for the current release: &rel.current;
Can you try that and see if the has the desired effect? That way, we don't have to touch that fine each time when there is a new CURRENT release branch.
Yes, that's true. But right now, there's no entity for this value.
We have two options:
a) Create a new value in the share/xml/freebsd.ent file that makes reference to 13.0-CURRENT
b) Change 12.0-CURRENT with 13.0-CURRENT
Adding Glen for clarification: Does it make sense to add the 13-CURRENT entity in the file or will that change other references that are using it already?
I think using 13-CURRENT is the right thing to do here and as @mat pointed out, it is easier to just reference it rather than changing it every time the version of CURRENT changes.
While I agree with mat, please go ahead and commit the change.
The Handbook does not directly use the entities used by the website, which I would like to change to be version-specific, to eliminate some overlap between the two sets of used entities.
For example, see r53534 of share/xml/freebsd.ent, where the 'rel121.current' (and related) entities were added.
To mat's comment, yes, this needs further revisiting, but this at least resolves the immediate problem.
