Default Is there an update of sysupgrade available?

The 9er branch uses tar.xz suffixes instead of tgz. You can easily patch the shell script sysupgrade to handle this but is there an updated version available?
Pkgsrc.se list only version 1.5nb3.

Unfortunately not, jmmv hasn't updated the script yet. A issue was created on gihtub, but no PR committed; personally I don't use sysupgrade, but if you do, you can consider submitting a PR yourself, remembering to cover both legacy and new compression format with a if statement, depending on uname -r. I look forward to things like basepkg (new, currently available in pkgsrc/wip) getting upstreamed, even against syspkg project which I can figure has been stagnating for quite some time already
