Description Graham Perrin 2021-02-10 03:22:01 UTC
Please prepare for the Handbook to document: 

boot_mute="NO" 

– and other options that may be relevant to the anticipated March RELEASE of 13.0. 

Maybe with reference to work in progress <https://www.freebsd.org/releases/13.0R/relnotes/#boot-loader> for boot loader changes.

– whilst much of what followed was off-topic (about git), points such as <https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-current/2021-January/078204.html> caught my eye with: 

> hw.vga.textmode="0"

Whether such things will belong anywhere in the Handbook, I don't know (sorry).

Side note: I don't know when boot_mute became an option, but it was mentioned in a December 2016 topic that's no longer available online:
