The standard-supfile is for -CURRENT aka the HEAD or "." in cvsup(1) terminology. It seems not to be what you want here (?). In the stable-supfile you can read... # The following line is for 4-stable. If you want 3-stable or # 2.2-stable, change "RELENG_4" to "RELENG_3" or "RELENG_2_2" # respectively. *default release=cvs tag=RELENG_4 ... which is very different from "." and although more clear. >> http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook\ >> /cvs-tags.html >> >> 5.2.1 is not here right now. > Looking at that url I see two tags of note: RELENG_5_2 > and RELENG_5_2_1_RELEASE. is the _RELEASE tag just > the 5.2.1 as it was released and no updates since? Is > RELENG_5_2 current ie = 5.2.1? If you want o stick with: * 5.2-RELEASE, use tag RELENG_5_2_0_RELEASE * 5.2 security and fixes (-p?), use RELENG_5_2 > What I don't understand is what tag I should use to > follow the 5.X series.

But if you want to use this branch be sure to read carefully : http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook\ /current-stable.html -- -jg. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
