System: NetBSD di_frueauf 1.0A NetBSD 1.0A (Milano) #12: Fri Sep 15 15:40:58 GMT 1995 milano@di_frueauf:/home/milano/source/netbsd-src/sys/arch/amiga/compile/Milano amiga


If you upgrade your source tree via patch files, not uuencoded binaries make patch
complain about missing eol and exiting with an error. Thus you have to edit
the patch file to make it work. Annoying. So it would be nice if binaries will get
uuencoded (like /src/etc/etc.vax/pcs750.bin.uu).

Try not to upgrade your source tree with sup but via patchfiles, while a binary
file got updated (like in the patch for current 130995) and watch
`patch -p < patchfile` puking.


uuencode binary files in the source tree.

cloak was a binary that should not have been in the CVS tree and has 
since been removed.
