Perhaps a nightly script (i.e. 350.freebsd-update which basically do
freebsd-update cron) would be better, as it ? Note that we can even
make the script configurable to install and reboot system.
Also, I always wish that the official installation disc to ship with a
portsnap tarball which included the snapshot at the tagged time, instead
of just do a tarball of export of CVS ports/, and use portsnap instead.
This will make the first time portsnap execution much less painful.
Another idea is to ship /var/db/mergemaster.mtree with the installation.
