Both RELENG_6 and RELENG_6_0 are called 6.0-RC1 at the moment. I did
this via a commit and a tag slip yesterday. In the past we've sometimes
renamed the RELENG_N branch to N-STABLE while there are still RCs being
released for RELENG_N_N. This has often caused a lot of confusion from
users, so I'm trying to make it less confusing this time around.
Hopefully there won't be a whole lot of RCs and we'll be able to get to
6.0-RELEASE quickly. If it looks like things will drag out then we
might consider unfreezing RELENG_6 and changing the name to 6-STABLE.
Fortunately the release is looking really good, and the only signficant
problem left without a solution is the USB keyboard issue. Hopefully
that can get resolved in the next few days.
