Eh; the doc folks probably need a reminder or some form of

g1-15(4.10-S)[1] cd /S2/usr/src
g1-15(4.10-S)[2] cat CVS/Tag 

>Is there a means to list available cvs tags without the risk of

Sure.  Direct a Web browser to; at the bottom of the page is
a drop-down list labeled "Show only files with tag:" which defaults to
"Allt tags / default branch".  Selecting that item provides a list of
available tags.

>Which is the tag now that will approach RELENG_5_3_0_RELEASE?

I'm pretty sure that would be RELENG_5, but concede that this is not my
particular area of expertise.

Evidence of curmudgeonliness:  becoming irritated with the usage of the
word "speed" in contexts referring to quantification of network
performance, as opposed to "bandwidth" or "latency."
