wallowed setting for /usr/local

Brian Whalen
It seems based on the release notes that this is part of the 6.0 install. I
installed 5.9 just before the 6.0 release and then did an upgrade and do
not see that modification made in /etc/fstab post upgrade.

Expected?

Yes, it is part of the install script, but not of the upgrade script.

Yes. If you upgrade, you must add this option manually.

How hard is it to check the upgrade notes before upgrading?

The upgrade script cannot do everything.  If we made it do everything,
the coding of it would become incredible fragile, and you'd end up with
a worse upgrade process.

Therefore some details are left for the human.
