Well, I'm still on 10:

     FreeBSD aneurin.horsfall.org 10.4-RELEASE-p13 FreeBSD 10.4-RELEASE-p13 #0: Thu Sep 27 09:21:23 UTC 2018     root at amd64-builder.daemonology.net:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

Just not enough hours in the day when one is retired...  I have a spare 
(and faster) box waiting for RELEASE once I get a round tuit, based upon 
my experiences with partition sizes[*] with the old box (I refuse to sling 
everything under "/").

Dreadful things happen if /tmp is "tmpfs", /tmp fills up with a massive 
compilation, and swap was too small...
