Subject: Branch Tags vs Release Tags
Need to upgrade to FreeBSD 4.9 so all my ports will run. Not sure, however if
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.
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.
Thanks much Ed. Bob
