No -- just carry on using the '.' (HEAD) tag to update your ports
tree.  The RELEASE_5_2_0 tag is just that: a point in time tag to
indicate the state of the ports tree at the time that all of the
packages for inclusion with release 5.2 were compiled.  It's not a
branch, and it's not worth tracking as it won't actually change.
