Looking to track beyond 5 releases, but not current ie -r RELENG_5_2

Yes, I was suggesting we use -r RELENG_5_2 in absence of -r RELENG_5

I did, as written in my initial post "cvs -R export -r RELENG_5_2 src"
It had occured to me if I started doing that regularly, & other were too,
that was a similar tracking scenario in response to which src-4 was created,
so would be useful to have a src-5 even though yes it would be based on
RELENG_5_2 & not RELENG_5.

Doesn't mean we couldn't export on RELENG_5_2, just not on RELENG_5,
it would still allow some tracking up the 5.2 p8 p9 p10 kernel fixes etc.
.. till "-r RELENG_5" comes available later.

RELENG_5 branch creation 16 Aug 2004
That's today, so soon probably, if it doesn't slip a bit.
So it looks like my idea came too late, might as well wait for RELENG_5 now.
( But rather than just forget the idea, it might be worth remembering
the possibility for when 6.low_somethings come round later. )
