OpenBSD - Release Building Shell Script

Contributed by jose on from the make-your-own-releases dept.

FenderQ contributes:
"Here is a very simple shell script that might help some people building a release.

I first created this when I needed to create a release from the "man release" documentation. Since some of the steps would take a long time I thought I would create this.

It will let you specify which parts of the release building you want to perform, give a start and finish time, and beep once it is complete.

Perfect to wake you up at 3:00am with beeping ;-) "

The beauty of this is you can roll your own sets and install a large number of machines from that. Snapshots, local modifications, etc. Worth a look.
