Please note that the tags do not use hyphens as in `1-2' but underscore characters as in `4_10'. The answer to your first question is: "Yes. At least these days they're equivalent." You might want to keep in mind that it's very important to make the distinction between a "branch" of development and a specific "tag". RELENG_4 is a branch, a continuous path of development that was spawned of the main FreeBSD trunk when RELENG_4 was created as a branch. As all branches this can grow or spawn new sub-branches. RELENG_4_10 is one of those sub-branches. It's a special sub-branch of RELENG_4 that "contains" a version of the sources as they were on the day 4.10-RELEASE was set in stone plus any critical security fixes that the Security Officer Team decides that should be added. > if i got this right, RELENG-4-10 will be used to stay explicitly with > 4.10-? Yes, it's a nice idea. You'll be getting everything 4.10-RELEASE included the day it was released *AND* all the fixes that are made to the initial source tree. > and RELENG-4 will be used to update to the latest 4.X-STABLE. True. > All security fixes and critical updates are in RELENG-4 too. Yes.
