remove sysutils/upobsd

Sebastien Marie-3
Hi,

I would like to know if someone still needs upobsd or if it is
removable ?

sysupgrade(8) in base mostly cover upobsd usage, and for uncovered
usage (creating unattented installation) I am not using it at all.

Currently, upstream is a bit unmaintained: some commits are still
unreleased (as using rdsetroot(8) from base), and I have untested
changes for unattented installation (but as I don't have usage of
it...)

Ah, and bitbucket removed the repository because it was mercurial
based (so HOMEPAGE and MASTER_SITES are dead too). But I could move it
to github if it makes sense to keep it.

I assume the following diff + some 'cvs rm' should be enough to
properly move it to Attic ?

Quirks reason 3 is 'no longer maintained upstream', but 4 ('superseded
by base component') could be possible too (even if not 100% right), or
6 ('no longer useful').

Comments or OK ?

I would like it to stay for the (I)nstallation part. Of course for the
(U)pgrade part, people should indeed use sysupgrade.

I use the install part because some providers don't provide a
pleasant-to-use console. Since I never use the default partitioning, I
just craft a special bsd.rd with upobsd, put in /bsd, and reboot.

If you still want to remove it, can you send me the latest sources?
I'll sort it out next time I need it.


Cheers,
Daniel

My use case is the same. I don't reinstall that often, as I usually I
stick to a provider for long time, but that's how I've used upobsd in
the past.

I use it when I upgrade my EdgeRouters. If upobsd is removed, I will find
another way :)

The diff to remove upobsd could be withdraw, I received enough
messages (via ports@ or privately) to show it makes sense to keep it.

I will reinstanciate the repository on github and update the port.

Thanks.

Why not use sysupgrade for those?
Did you forget to switch to the new bootloader a few releases ago?
