Theo de Raadt (

CVSROOT: /cvs Module name: src Changes by: firstname.lastname@example.org 2023/03/17 16:52:22 Modified files: sys/conf : newvers.sh Log message: remove -beta tag
For those unfamiliar with the process: this is not the 7.3 release, but is part of the standard build-up to the release.
A further indication that the release is being finalized came a couple of hours earlier in Christian "naddy" Weisgerber's (
naddy@) instruction to the
ports mailing list that commits to the ports tree are now restricted and require permission:
List: openbsd-ports Subject: All ports commits now need approval From: Christian Weisgerber <naddy () mips ! inka ! de> Date: 2023-03-17 20:57:18 We are rapidly approaching the 7.3 release. All commits to the ports tree now need to be approved by sthen@ or naddy@. If it isn't important for the release or the next -stable cycle, we won't approve it. Known pending changes: net/curl: 7.89 next week -- Christian "naddy" Weisgerber email@example.com
This of means, as usual, that testing is even more welcome than usual, and users who feel up to it or who are simply feeling adventurous are encouraged to grab and install snapshots.
Remember: It's time to start using
-D snap" with
(Regular readers will know what comes next…) This serves as an excellent reminder to upgrade snapshots frequently, test both base and ports, and report problems [plus, of course, donate!].
