I'm not sure there's a specific web page/etc on it, but you can find the
initial patch announcement here:
I believe the "-k" described in the original post is no longer required.

Hmm. I believe so.

You can do the normal upgrade -- build world, kernel, install kernel, reboot,
mergemaster -p, installworld, full mergemaster, reboot. Or you can wait
another week and install FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE, if you want to be running on a
release rather than doing incremental updates along the branch.
