I'd like to propose the following change to /usr/src/etc/Makefile
as part of "make upgrade". What this does is allow one to say

make upgrade ETC_UPGRADE_ONLY=1

so that the upgrade process only affects files in /etc and doesn't
try to do anything else.

What is the general opinion about this?
make upgrade has changed a bit in last year it seems.

#2 Updated by dillon about 7 years ago

I don't think there was enough interest in limiting make upgrade to /etc. The
recent addition of DEVFS means make upgrade no longer has to mess with devices,
which was the biggest annoyance people had with it.
