Like you wrote: tag=. mean get me the latest. The reason this isn't
advisable is because a bug can easly kill you system. I would advise
you to use the RELENG_5_2 (i.e. 5.2 + updates) and change when the next
version comes out. There aren't going to be any 5.2.1 unleas there's a
good reason for. (The last FreeBSD version out of the 4.x brange that
has this was 4.6)
