openup vs. syspatch vs. pkg_add -u ?

athompso
Now that we’re in the wonderful world of syspatch(8) – which works well for me so far (thanks for the hard work, everyone!), I’m trying to figure out if there’s still any point to using m:tier’s openup tool.

From what I can tell, running “syspatch ; pkg_add -u” is pretty much equivalent to what openup does… but am I missing anything?

 

Thanks,

-Adam

Hello,

syspatch only updates base system, not packages.
You still need mtier if you want to update packages on a release.
