nothing!  I'm using the nyc*bug-pleasing tool called net/svnup ;)

hirren on IRC said he sees the svn revision number in his uname -a, but
says he didn't see it when things like world and kernel are out of sync,
which is likely the case with the 9.2 box.

Not having svn installed... that might matter?  Neither has svn installed.

right.  So the project will maintain 8.x, 9.x, 10.x and focus on 11.x?

Here we go again!


Why the rush to 11 for HEAD?
