freebsd-update not updating /usr/src/UPDATING

It seems not correct, because sources become new, but there is no information about changes in UPDATING file. Hard to maintain and make some confusion.

Also I noticed that updating by csup and by freebsd-update bring me different version of files. I means not major differences, but different in versions numbers. But this last may be ok.

How-To-Repeat: Just try to update by freebsd-update and check /usr/src/UPDATING

Is /usr/src/UPDATING still not being updated?

Colin, could you take a look at this PR please?

This is still happening with FreeBSD 10.0; `src` is in `Components`, `IgnorePaths` is empty, other files in `/usr/src` get updated, only `/usr/src/UPDATING` is being skipped.

With 10.0 up to -p6, and <http://svnweb.freebsd.org/base?view=revision&revision=267829> showing that `releng/10.0/UPDATING` is being modified upstream, the last entry in `/usr/src/UPDATING` on this box is from "20131223".

batch change:

For bugs that match the following
-  Status Is In progress 
- Untouched since 2018-01-01.
- Affects Base System OR Documentation


Reset to open status.

I did a quick pass but if you are getting this email it might be worthwhile to double check to see if this bug ought to be closed.

Drop freebsd-update PRs which were assigned to me.  I'm not working on this code any more.
