crees added a comment to D28843: Create dhclient pid directory if it doesn't exist.

I don't think daemons usually create piddirs- this is very common in ports land. Usually it's because they don't have permission for /var/run, so I guess they can't, but it's certainly not out of the ordinary.

You're quite right. I don't know why my /var/run/dhclient is owned like
that!

Hold for a bit- it errs on the verbose side, so in the test suite we get unnecessary stderr output. Will add extra checks.

crees added a comment to D24415: Add rcvar to rc.d/utx.

I'll agree with Conrad and Jilles in that it's adding a configuration value (needlessly?) and doesn't really do what it's advertised to do anyway.

crees added a comment to D24414: Switch to umount -A in rc.d/root and document it.

I'm not sure the /dev/null bit is necessary here now since that was presumably originally to ignore the failed amount of root, in the days before the -A option was a thing. In fact, I think it's undesirable as any errors from umount -A are now something we need to see.

The 'and' makes it explicit to me that 1.6 is affected. You can think of it as 'version 1.6 and versions up to ...', but I know Romance languages like yours are stricter on leaving out nouns than English.

This needs some heavy testing, for which I'm afraid I just don't have the capacity for at the moment. I've been bitten quite hard recently by a 'simple' rc change recently so I'm reluctant to put my stamp on it!
