I am using freebsd-update to update a system running a generic kernel.  I ran into an interesting situation where after it has downloaded the updates it enters a configuration phase where it shows "updated" config files with the old and new.  You can hit return to enter vi and clean up the file.  After that you get to a selection of files where you only get the question does this look reasonable?  Your options are Y or N.  Y makes the changes and N just terminates the entire update forcing you to start over again from the beginning.  Why can't you correct issues with those config files?  Why bother to even ask if there is only one possible response (Y)?
