Subject: Branch Tags vs Release Tags


Need to upgrade to FreeBSD 4.9 so all my ports will run. Not sure, however if
I want/need:


This is the one you want, as it contains all the fixes etc since 4.9 was released.

   The release branch for FreeBSD-4.9, used only for security
   advisories and other critical fixes.



This one is exactly as released, ie what you get on the install CD.

FreeBSD 4.9

I understand that the Release tag references FreeBSD version at a given point in time, but is there a problem selecting RELENG_4_9, "...used only for security advisories and other critical fixes."

No problem, in fact it would make little sense not to use this branch.

I guess that 's what so confusing. Who would benefit using


Thanks much Ed.
