Keeping -CURRENT up to date with Poudriere

Hi all,

I’ve got a 12.0-CURRENT Poudriere jail for ports testing.  Am I right in thinking that when Poudriere updates a jail it uses freebsd-update?  In which case, -STABLE and -CURRENT jails can’t be updated - correct?

In this case, if I want to get the latest -STABLE or -CURRENT snapshot, will I need to recreate my jail?  Or can Poudriere do it a different way?

Currently when I try to update I get this:

> [00:00:00] ====>> Upgrading using ftp
> /etc/resolv.conf -> /poudriere/jails/12Ci386/etc/resolv.conf
> mount: /poudriere/jails/12Ci386/compat: No such file or directory
> Bad system call (core dumped)
> 12.0-CURRENT
> [00:00:01] ====>> Recording filesystem state for clean… done

Many thanks,
