I'm running 7.1-PRERELEASE. Yesterday I csup'ed and upgraded as I've done several times in order to install 7.1-BETA2. Everything went as it should, but my system still says 7.1-PRERELEASE. In my stable-supfile I have "*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_7".

Can anyone tell me where I can make sure that my system upgrades to BETA-2?
You are essentially running BETA2, with even newer fixes since the BETA2
release.  You should stay with the RELENG_7 tag.

Thanks Jeremy
I thought that the uname tag would change to "BETA-2"

I sincerely do not know where "BETA2" (not "BETA-2") comes from.  It's
not defined anywhere in src/sys/conf/ in CVS:

I got it from here

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.

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.
