It was only in 14-CURRENT and unfortunately it has been reverted :(

What the fsck(8)?! egrep -i 'update.+current' /usr/local/etc/anacrontab|awk '{print $1}' 3 (days)
Have to investigate this. Do they try to fool me? Didn't read todays mailing lists yet, and some of the recent hackers mails seems to be missing... But maybe there is a discussion on <freebsd-current>? I'll have a look. The commit's comment says "This is not ready yet for prime time". So maybe it just needs some more time to mature, that's normal. 14-RELEASE has a long way to go, hopefully that's enough for it to get commited again.

Okay, so teacher says: "Say BSD BSD BSD BSD BSD BSD over and over (sounds like Beastie)
then, go sit in the corner with face to the wall."

Does this count as mantra of the week?

Short answer: No. Long answer: open a thread titled: "Does this count as BMW?" (make it boldface to get more attention) with a poll quoting your question. Then wait patiently and come back in summer three month later.

Use Beastie, Because I Said So.

May the sol burns thy daemon. benedicite soliculus.

First thing first, I don't believe in anonymity, thus my vote was #1, i.e. now I'm a 28.6 percenter!
** but I defend the right of being anonymous.

Likely just by chance, but you found one of BeaSDie's magic numbers: bc -e '0^0 * 1^1 * 2^2 * 3^3' -e quit 108
No. Repeating mantra 108 times, is a Tantric tradition.

On your comment about sol, Latin, daemon etc:
* soliculus -> sol -> sun. i.e. light and fire.
* sol refers to my user profile picture.
* daemon refers to non-Beastie i.e. darkness.
* benedicite == praise.
=> The sol chose the beastie, and he will burn your daemons.

Some user wrote in a PM:
Hi there, you have to explain to me the "BeaSDie's Mantra of the Week" and how it works please
I dont get it...I read it somethimes but fast.. :rolleyes:
You can only grasp the meaning of a BMW by driving it. periodic daily -- if that's not possible, periodic weekly. That will elevate your mind. Then, when the time is ripe, do freebsd-update -r 20.3-RELEASE on all your systems.

This week's BMW wrote itself... :eek:

"Blessed are the disciples of the yea free BeaSD, for they have the finest code quality & (mostly) well working code review facilities, and a friendly & active core team constantly helping developers to improve their personal soft skills."

Let's praise the yea free BeaSD & them contributors, commiters, ports(7) maintainers and Jason A. Donenfeld (vicariously selected for his kind participation in a 2-week hackathon & review & current events (more in this month's hackers archive: look for WireGuard)).
Amen.
