Description dewayne 2021-10-15 03:27:44 UTC
There are three supporting layers to s6-rc.  Which typically need to be upgraded together.  The package, ports version and available current version are:
sysutils/s6-rc  to
sysutils/s6 to
lang/execline  to
devel/skalib to

The skalib changes (from are:
    libbiguint removed.
    Obsolete skalibs/environ.h and skalibs/getpeereid.h headers removed.
    rc4 and md5 functions removed.
    iobuffer removed. fd_cat() and fd_catn() changed signatures.
    All *_t types renamed without the _t suffix, in order to preserve POSIX namespace.
    subgetopt() renamed to lgetopt().
    All signal functions entirely reworked; cruft removed.
    skalibs/cdb_make.h renamed to skalibs/cdbmake.h; cdbmake functions now return 1 on success and 0 on failure.
    skalibs/cdb.h redesigned to remove reader state from the cdb structure itself.
    The unsafe cdb_successor() API has been removed.
    New skalibs/posixplz.h function: munmap_void().
which flows upwards to the other packages. Changes to signal handling is noteworthy.

execline introduces a highly beneficial case "statement".
