Involvement & Advocacy
I have been using FreeBSD since 2000 and an active ports maintainer.
From 2004-2006 I helped run the Seattle BSD Users Group (SeaBUG) and maintained their website.
Ports I maintain
I maintain(ed) the following ports (software packages):
Ports under consideration or working on but not submitted/committed
This is how I update my systems. I always do this in screen since it can take a while.
- Run freebsd-update fetch
- Run freebsd-update install
- Reboot (if prior step installed updates)
- Run freebsd-update install - once more to fix any dangling issues
- Run pkg_cutleaves - identify and remove any extraneous ports
- Run pkg audit -F -or- portaudit -Fa - to check for any security issues with installed ports
- Run pkg upgrade - upgrade all eligible packages
