     SYSINFO(1)                                             SYSINFO(1)

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

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

     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 git repository by executing the
          following commands:

               bind -ac /dist/plan9front /
               git/pull -u $repo
