/usr/src/UPDATING vs FreeBSD Security Advisory FreeBSD-SA-04:04.tcp

I've just (with cvsup) started upgrading one of my boxes in line with the recent advisory (FreeBSD Security Advisory FreeBSD-SA-04:04.tcp), and I'm at the point where I am reading /usr/src/UPDATING as per all recommendations from the HandBook to various user group advisories.
However, I noticed that there is no mention of this specific advisory anywhere in UPDATING. So.., have I missed something? Here's what I did: -
1] "su" to root
2] cd /usr/share/examples/cvsup
3] Edit stable-supfile - changed "default_host" to read "*default host=cvsup.uk.FreeBSD.org"
4] Ran "cvsup stable-supfile"
Aren't details of this advisory (and others?) supposed to be in /usr/src/UPDATING? I only askbecause I'd not want to proceed from this point only to realise later on that the system *wasn't* patched after all.
I'd appreciate some advice, or pointer to some change in procedure that I might have missed somewhere along the line, please.
Thanks for the time.
