Quick 10.0-RELEASE status update:
- iconv(3) changes have been made in head/, and merged to stable/10
- Two MFCs are undergoing review, one of which I will commit right
before updating the stable/10 branch name to reflect '-BETA4'.
- Builds for 10.0-BETA4 will begin tomorrow. The schedule page on the
website will be updated to reflect the start of the -BETA4 builds, as
well as updating the remainder of the schedule to reflect the
adjustments after the delay.
 - Important note to those tracking stable/10: An update will be
committed tomorrow that will disable automatic creation of pkg.conf(5).
Those installing new systems from 10.0-BETA4 should experience no
trouble, as the update pkg(8) version (pkg-1.2.1) should be available
around the same time 10.0-BETA4 is announced. This affects the pkg(8)
bootstrap functionality *only*. Those with bootstrapped pkg(8) will not
be affected. For those doing source-based upgrades from stable/10 *and*
do not have pkg(8) already bootstrapped, there will be a brief (about
1 day, "brief" being relative) window of time where pkg(8) (versions
less than 1.2) will not have a pre-configured pkg.conf(5). This will
also be noted in the 10.0-BETA4 announcement mail.
 - I believe this is a non-issue, since usr.sbin/pkg/config.c has
pkg.FreeBSD.org set as the packagesite, but I am sure I am overlooking
something obvious that will prove me wrong. So, that is why the
"important note" is longer than the actual status update. :-)
Thank you for your patience.
