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")

I believe RELENG is short for "RELease ENGineering".
