"I just added an option to my release building shell script for allowing people to check differences in their source code compared to the stable branch. The new option will also generate patch style files (diff) and a file listing each file changed.
I'm sure the wizards using CVS and such won't need this, but this might help those who are wondering/worried/paranoid about what they are possibly missing from the stable branch.

"The binpatch subsystem has got the following improvements:Pretty cool work on both of their parts. Give these projects a spin and see if you can't contribute bugfixes or enhancements!
- Source patches are now fetched from FTP mirrors. They're not packed along with the binpatch subsystem anymore.
- More verbose. It now tells the user about:
- missing files,
- where the binary patches are created,
- how to install them,
- and some other minor messages
Available from CVS, CVSWeb and FTP Prebuilt binary patches available for i386. I'm not enforcing the use of these. They're built by me, they're fine, but I can't claim I'm a trusted source, until I get support from the OpenBSD Team, if someday I get it. A man page is in process
UPDATE : Fixed the URl for the binary patches, thanks Gerardo.
