Description Harald Schmalzbauer 2015-01-22 13:52:45 UTC
Accidentally, while running devd(8) in debug/foreground mode I noticed the following output:
Parsing /etc/devd.conf
Parsing files in /etc/devd
Parsing files in /usr/local/etc/devd

/etc/devd/ was obvious, although not documented, since there are conf files populated in base.
But /usr/local/etc/devd/ was new to me.
Both directories are not mentioned in DEVD(8), nor referenced in DEVD.CONF(5).

If someone has a reccomendation for a CLI-man-page editor besides vi(1)&co (I'm not familar with formatting tags), I'd do my best preparing a non-native-speaker's diff. Have alwas been curious how people write/edit man pages…

I checked against "FreeBSD 8.1-STABLE #0: Mon Sep  6 18:31:39 CEST 2010" and "FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE+FP1 #0 r277168M"
