Re: etcupdate warning: "No previous tree to compare against, a sane comparison is not possible."

Hello Jonh!

I did it and it worked fine:

etcupdate extract
etcupdate diff > /tmp/etc.diff
cd /
patch -R < /tmp/etc.diff

Patch can't find diff paths so I run it inside /etc /etc/defalts ... until
all diff is applied.

Now when I run 'etcupdate' I don't get any warning and 'etcupdate diff'
doesn't show diffs.

Hope that warning is solved when next update comes.
