In a message listed in this thread someone has mentioned that this can
already be done from cron. ( make -C /usr/src update ) at your own
preferred time of updating.
No offense but including something like this into the periodic system
without a way to randomize the time at which it will actually run would be
irresponsible while wreaking havoc on the source servers and I would
strongly advise against it.
If a way to randomize the time at which this is run is conceived and you
wish to proceed I would also strongly advise that it is moved to a
periodic weekly location instead.
Personally I see updating your source tree as a interactive process unless
for the use of a mirroring server which is not needed on every machine
this would end up on. Adding this I only see results of blatant enabling
the controls creating pointless mirrors. Maybe adding this to src/tools
would be a better place or creating a port for this.
With all do respect & Regards,
