This is NOT a troll.

Do NOT hijack this thread to troll/flame.
I'm writing this in light of the *many* problem reports I see on the
lists with 9.0-RELEASE.
I'm getting extremely worried here.
Short introduction in order:
See, we use FreeBSD at work for our firewall boxes, running:
- PF + CARP + PFsync
- bacula client
- nginx and/or haproxy
These boxes serve as frontend firewalls for all our projects/products,
including a few high traffic ones.
For example our most traffic intense project has 4 firewalls, 2 each on
2 different datacenters, sharing 4 CARP IPs with automagic failover.
Now, I find the number of problem reports regarding 9.0-RELEASE alarming
and I'm growing more and more fearful towards it.
In the current state of things, I have *absolutely* no wish to run it in
I'd love to hear feedback.
