Hi all,

The problems with running freebsd-update on 10.1-RC3 (including using
freebsd-update to upgrade to -RC4 or -RELEASE) should now be fixed.  The
problem was due to some files being missing from freebsd-update mirrors
and resulted from -RC3 going out at the same time as patches were being
built for a set of security advisories (SA-14:20 through 14:23).

I know this glitch has been discussed in a large number of places, and
I'm sure there are people who have been affected by this who are not
subscribed to -stable, so please relay this message to the appropriate
fora where you see this being discussed.
