I'm still relatively new to FreeBSD, and I was wondering what most of
you use as a patching procedure for FreeBSD (not the ports)

Up to now, I have always folowed the instructions in '2) To patch your
present system:'.
Yet somehow this seems like the long way to do it.

Therefor, I'm wondering how most of you keep your systems up to date.

For the moment, I'm only managing my home server (which is still
critical), but I would also like to know how to manage this in a
professional deployment (I used to manage Solaris networks, and we had
these patch-clusters which were rahter nice).

Thanks in advance
