Hi guys,

It was requested that I post a news item regarding the change to the
default rc.conf. I don't mind either way, so let me know if I should
or should not.

Changes to rc.conf and crypttab

As of initscripts-2012.07.5, the default format of /etc/rc.conf and
/etc/crypttab have changed. See their respective man pages for more

The purpose of this change is to unify the configuration of systemd
and initscripts. This will allow us to share code and documentation,
and should make
maintenance of initscripts simpler in the long-run.

The old format is still supported, so old config files should still
work unchanged.
