debdrup added a comment to D25433: ports.7: mention SU_CMD.

I'm not completely sure about .It Va, but the Va macro is not documented in mandoc(7) and only appears in some openbsd mandoc.samples man-page which doesn't seem to be connected to their or our build, where it's referenced as a variable.
.Ql also isn't documented in mandoc(7), however it's a quoted literal according to groff_mdoc(7) from textproc/groff, so I think it's fine.

debdrup added a comment to D25139: Add lldb version of gdb mini-tutorial..

Aside from these two nits, I think it would be best to do s/a\.out/progname/g as a.out is only supported via COMPAT_43 on FreeBSD, and - as far as I know - isn't used anymore. This also has the added benefit of bringing it in line with the example used just above the section where a.out is currently mentioned.

debdrup added a comment to D21886: Add USB support for location based device unit numbers.

I've been using this script for about a week, and it does exactly what it says on the tin.
Since devfs.conf only gets read on boot, I think handling this script via devd is the perfect way to handle devices that can disappear and reappear.

Would be fantastic if it could be merged, others can enjoy it. :)

Are you using this patch or script?

debdrup updated subscribers of D25139: Add lldb version of gdb mini-tutorial..

I wonder if it would be appropriate to ask @woodsb02 whether his instructions on https://wiki.freebsd.org/BenWoods/DebuggingPorts could be added as a section of this handbook page, or perhaps a note made about it instructing the user to look at the wiki? It seems very appropriate, as otherwise, people might not know how to get debugging symbols for third party programs supplied by ports.
Additionally, should there also be a section noting that debugging symbols for -RELEASE is included in the base-dbg and kernel-dbg distribution sets available on all installation media but -bootonly and -memdisk-mini images? People building from source might also need to be directed towards the appropriate page.
