Thanks for your insight.
The "security" or "safe" branches (such as RELENG_4_8) are
relatively new. We still have to have tags such as
RELENG_4_8_0_RELEASE for the release process, and you
can use any tag for cvsup. Before the "security" branches
existed, we used to encourage people to upgrade to those
release-tags instead of upgrading to stable.
There are still times when you might want to cvsup to a
release point. Of course, once you do the buildworld
for that point, then you'll never see any new changes
until you switch to a different tag for cvsup.
For instance, it might be quite reasonable to cvsup to a
release tag, and once you know that worked you would then
cvsup to some later release tag, or to RELENG_4 ("stable").
