    Slide 15 mentions that deraadt@ signs the patch file. This made me wonder: What happens if he unexpectedly falls critically ill or dies? For at least one OpenBSD release cycle, there might just be no way to sign anything.

      I love how “boring” syspatch is. freebsd-update is certainly more complex, but does a pretty solid job itself.

      I am, however, a bit concerned by FreeBSD’s “packaging base” movement, both in terms of complexity (lots of tiny packages), and how long it seems to be taking.

        lots of tiny packages

        illumos is a wonderful example of just how much pain this is.
