-current has moved to 7.3, ports commits restricted pending release

Contributed by rueda on from the here-we-go-again dept.

With the following commit, Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) moved -current to version 7.3:

Module name:	src
Changes by:	2023/03/17 16:52:22

Modified files:
	sys/conf       : 

Log message:
remove -beta tag

For those unfamiliar with the process: this is not the 7.3 release, but is part of the standard build-up to the release.

A further indication that the release is being finalized came a couple of hours earlier in Christian "naddy" Weisgerber's (naddy@) instruction to the ports mailing list that commits to the ports tree are now restricted and require permission:

List:       openbsd-ports
Subject:    All ports commits now need approval
From:       Christian Weisgerber <naddy () mips ! inka ! de>
Date:       2023-03-17 20:57:18

We are rapidly approaching the 7.3 release.  All commits to the
ports tree now need to be approved by sthen@ or naddy@.  If it isn't
important for the release or the next -stable cycle, we won't approve

Known pending changes:
net/curl: 7.89 next week

This of means, as usual, that testing is even more welcome than usual, and users who feel up to it or who are simply feeling adventurous are encouraged to grab and install snapshots.

Remember: It's time to start using "-D snap" with pkg_add (and pkg_info).

(Regular readers will know what comes next…) This serves as an excellent reminder to upgrade snapshots frequently, test both base and ports, and report problems [plus, of course, donate!].
