I sincerely do not know where "BETA2" (not "BETA-2") comes from. It's not defined anywhere in src/sys/conf/newvers.sh in CVS: http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/src/sys/conf/newvers.sh To me, this means someone is hand-hacking the file before making ISO releases. The problem with this is there's no way to correlate what CVS tag said string is based on; I have to assume it's RELENG_7. CC'ing Ken, who can probably explain where "BETA2" comes from, since I believe he's the one who makes the builds. <opinion> I really wish we'd name our not-yet-RELEASE-or-STABLE ISO releases as FreeBSD x.y-PRERELEASE-YYYYMMDD, which would make more sense to users. </opinion> -- | Jeremy Chadwick jdc at parodius.com | | Parodius Networking http://www.parodius.com/ | | UNIX Systems Administrator Mountain View, CA, USA | | Making life hard for others since 1977.
