I was told (on freenode #FreeBSD) that this might be useful to know: the
test suite did not exist in the 2.8 days yet (so if updating, you might
wish to make sure it gets ran), and the new version also installs a new
binary, "nbd-trdump", and a few extra manpages, which you might need to
update something for.


Copyshops should do vouchers. So that next time some bureaucracy
requires you to mail a form in triplicate, you can mail it just once,
add a voucher, and save on postage.
