Hello!

In this final episode of the Big Merge, Stuart talks about the importance of waiting a grace period after a large update so as to act quickly to fix any issues. We perform a final package batch ingest for -current and build a Security update for 14.2.

There is a new episode available. Season 2 episode 11, Kernel module loader part 1. This episode should be interesting for community members who wish to develop support for additional hardware.
