Description phoffman 2009-05-02 22:10:01 UTC
'freebsd-update upgrade' asks one or more trivial questions when it is run. It also takes (at least on the box I am upgrading now) over an hour to run. It would be nice to have a "don't ask questions" mode so that I can run it in a nohup...& fashion.

How-To-Repeat: Run 'freebsd-update upgrade'
