freebsd-update is great except when it forces you to run mergemaster. All of a sudden other OS's upgrade systems start to look a lot more friendly.
When I run freebsd-update, mergemaster seems to choke on understanding that the only line that has changed in a config file is the version number, it forces me to hand edit countless files just to update their version numbers, the body content hasn't changed. Is there some trick to making mergemaster behave a little smarter at this? When you have several servers to do, this adds up to many man hours wasted cause of mergemaster.
