Please update your repository configurations to now only track the /latest repository. This is the default from /etc/pkg/FreeBSD.conf.

Hi Bryan,

thats good notes, but how about users tracking ssp and changing the repo or upgrading to 10.1 if released?
I suspect packages will be replaced during 10.1 upgrade with NON_SSP packages since the tree was tagged already yesterday by babt.
