SYSINFO(1)                                             SYSINFO(1)

     NAME
          sysinfo, sysupdate - report information about, update the
          system

     SYNOPSIS
          sysinfo [ -e e-mail ] [ -p ]
          sysupdate [ -i ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Sysinfo executes a number of commands that report informa-
          tion about the hardware and software configuration of the
          running system, concatenating the output to stdout.

          The -p flag causes the output to be posted at a website
          archive, http://sysinfo.9front.org, which in turn forwards
          the message to a mailing list, 9front-sysinfo@9front.org. A
          URL pointing to the archived output is returned.  The -e
          flag causes a reply-to e-mail address to be included in the
          message (the e-mail address is not divulged to the mailing
          list).  These flags are useful for reporting new installs to
          the development team.

          Sysupdate updates the local mercurial repository by execut-
          ing the following commands:

          bind -ac /dist/plan9front /
          hg -v pull -u

          If the -i flag is included, the command hg incoming is
          prepended.
