So, RELENG_7 was branched and it seems a good idea to release a new ISO image of FreeSBIE based on it.
It also looks like people want it (thank you, Julian ), so I think it is a really good idea.
I must admit I’ve not a lot of time to work on it, so I’ll probably end up using the same configuration of FreeSBIE-2.0.1 .
The great news is unionfs will be enabled by default, like in FreeSBIE-1.x . The only caveat is: will it be stable enough? I know Hiroki SATO committed some fixes to it to HEAD just after the “approval lock” on HEAD was removed, and it may be a good idea to backport them to RELENG_7, so that users gain a better FreeSBIE experience. Time will tell.
To warm up my building environment, at the moment I’m building a 8-CURRENT base ISO images with few packages.
Be ready for FreeSBIE-$SOMECODENAME ! (suggestions welcome).
