* README: add generic notes about GENERIC and NOTESEitan Adler2018-06-171-1/+3
| | | | | | | | | | | Inform new users what GENERIC and NOTES are. These are useful for people perusing the tree without a great deal of specific fbsd knowledge. See discussion of r334073 for further motivation. Requested by: jhb Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=335299
* README: Reduce the textdump; describe the projectEitan Adler2018-05-231-23/+15
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Rework the README to make it a little easier for new users. This is the first file many will see when persuing the FreeBSD source code so - remove some of the text describes how to build. This is better covered in the linked documentation. - add a small blurb for what FreeBSD is. Some users might find this document through features such as github search so they may not even know what the project is generally, gear this file for the new, accidental, or casual user rather than towards someone seeking fuller documentation.

* README: changes and fixupsEitan Adler2015-04-191-17/+12
| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Two orthogonal goals: - try to make README look a little nicer on phabricator by using Remarkup syntax for commands (using `` instead of using a closing ') - try to make README look a little nicer on github. - Don't encourage `make world` when the handbook specifies otherwise - Change language around documentation to be a bit clearer MFC After: 2 weeks Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=281727

* Reflect reality:Alexander Langer2000-07-311-6/+8
| | | | | | | | | | | | - Make world doesn't build the modules any more. - Mention the buildkernel/installkernel targets as common used targets. - LINT has gone, NOTES is new but cannot be built. It is a pure reference file. However, I still mentioned LINT but pointed out the difference between the ancient LINT and the new NOTES. This should avoid confusion. - crypto/ subdir isn't export controlled any more. Notes: svn path=/head/; revision=64047
