Kind of the easiest thing to do is trim the tag for how much less security you want. 7.0-RELEASE gets you just that. 7 a little more fluid and HEAD is bleeding edge - is CURRENT for 7.xx. So, tag=RELENG_7_0 I think only security fixes tag=RELENG_7 security fixes and stable upgrades tag=. latest additions and fixes and experiments I am a little more foggy about how the next major (8.xx) fits in to the tag values. ////jerry > > ................................................. > -CURRENT is the development tree that will eventually become the next major > version of FreeBSD.
