OpenBSD 6.1 Song Released - April 26, 2017, 8:57 pm UTC

Every OpenBSD release since 3.0 (back in 2001) has had at least one relase song, and OpenBSD 6.1 is no different. Today, Theo de Raadt released the OpenBSD 6.1. The Songs page has download links, lyrics and a background story, which reads:

OpenBSD was only a few months old when we realized that read-only repository access for everyone was a critical concept.

Previously, open source projects would make occasional releases accompanied by tarballs of final source files and Changelogs files, but would not expose the step-by-step changes of the development process. Unwittingly all open source projects were operating with a walled garden approach.

to sum up the various ways one could run which version of which firefox
on which version of OpenBSD.
