Thanks for the reply.

I think what's confusing me here is that I assumed that 5.1R was
still "officially supported" and every other advisory up to this one has
been included, like last week's FreeBSD-SA-04:03.jail advisory, for
example. So am I to assume then that as of this week 5.1R is no longer
"officially supported"?
