Hi Tom, You are correct, the hardened/linux/${arch} profiles were born by releng. Hardened project took them over some time ago however and have been maintaining both profile sets in parallel. The time has come to pair that down to a single set of profiles again; thus the older hardened/${arch} profiles have been deprecated. The hardened/linux/${arch}/10.0 profiles are tested/approved by the hardened team. Please file a bug if you run into problems. Gordon Malm (gengor)
