Someone please tell me why my supfile is not working. I think the problem is the tag but I am unsure why:

*default host=cvsup2.FreeBSD.org
*default base=/var/db
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_6_2
*default delete use-rel-suffix

From the FreeBSD Handbook, A.5 Using CVSup:
"Warning: Be very careful to specify any tag= fields correctly. Some tags are valid only for certain collections of files. If you specify an incorrect or misspelled tag, CVSup will delete files which you probably do not want deleted. In particular, use only tag=. for the ports-* collections.
Keep in mind that only the tag=. is relevant for the Ports Collection."

Please, remember to check the documentation before posting.

The Handbook also describes how to use portsnap to update the Ports Collection. Portsnap is very convenient and easy to use, and comes installed with FreeBSD 6.2.
