It refers to the latest on the 6.2-RELEASE branch. To get the latest from the 6-STABLE branch use the RELENG_6 tag. (There is not really any 6.2-STABLE branch, just a 6-STABLE branch from which all the 6.x releases get branched off. The term 6.2-STABLE just means: "The 6-STABLE branch at any point in time after 6.2-RELEASE but before 6.3-RELEASE") > > The background (somewhat long winded) to the question and why I'm > confused follows.

I believe RELENG is short for "RELease ENGineering". -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
