editor_callfortesting.org added a comment to D12848: Remove 'adding_user.7'.

Were the tips removed by this added to adduser(8) or the Handbook?

editor_callfortesting.org added a comment to D5473: ATA/ATAPI6 device emulation in bhyve.

In my testing, this appears to be based on FreeBSD 10.1, which is well supported by AHCI emulation. Supporting back to 5.0 or earlier would make this much more useful.

Consider changing it to mention of using a flash .img installer in Shell mode. I find them quite useful for rescue work and the install media can even be used to boot the new installation in bhyve(8).

Several people would like to see this through. Please add a copyright and license to the work.

mat, is this something you can commit?

editor_callfortesting.org added a comment to D9981: Committer's Guide Rewrite.

Ed's comments are all accurate. This document conflates many things and suggest we take a moment to address them at BSDCan or in advance. I for one think the nuts and bolts of SVN be separated out, ideally in a way that produces a document that can double as an in-base man page for snvlite(1).

Yes, this is a forklift upgrade of a ransom note of a document. Please specify the sequence of changes you would like to see.

That's correct. And I prefer that the problem is fixed in beadm from ports.

I am strongly opposed to doing any configuration changes from a startup script.
If any tool produces a broken system configuration, then that tool should be fixed.
zfsbe will obey the ZFS properties, not change them.

Some of the issues that this addresses, as pointed out:

editor_callfortesting.org added a comment to D7388: benchmarks/sysbench: upgrade to sysbench-0.5.

The original sysbench author promised an updated release but may have abandoned the project. Percona has forked it for their purposes. Other suggestions in this situation?

Support for FreeBSD 6 and older, even if for historical/academic purposes, is a topic that keeps coming up. Legacy systems come in all shapes and sizes and I can think of at least one point-of-sale vendor that spans generations of FreeBSD and other Unix systems.

I can't help but notice that there is a /usr/share/firmware directory.

editor_callfortesting.org added a comment to D7157: sysutils/uefi-edk2-bhyve: add slave port with CSM enabled.

May I suggest removing "-edk2" from the port name? Few users know what this means and it is easily forgotten.
