From
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/cvs-tags.html:

RELENG_6_1
     The release branch for FreeBSD-6.1, used only for security advisories
and other critical fixes

I'm sure a case could be made with regard to updated timezone information
being "critical" -- but since a port exists for timezone information, there
is less of a need to push this into the release branch.
