phew, aha, now I know what you mean(after reading Ralph`s post exactly) really didn't see that ralphbsz is the inventor of "download and place”You keep trying to dispute the words “download and place” – these are ralphbsz’s words.
while I compile and boot mostly from disks , I think netboot has a lot to do with distributing FreeBSD code(on the local network).It has nothing to do with Git, or with distributing FreeBSD code. If you want to talk about TFTP, you should open a new thread.
also used emulex fc-cards in the past... while I remember on one server I had to replace one with an qlogic because of missing emulex-driver.
And ,No: don`t want to talk about anything like tftp here no more ,
the climate here seems too poisoned and unfocused
(sure not your fault),
and maybe meet you sometime here again,
until then take care
