cvsup current question

The stablest 5 I've found is to use RELENG_5_2 as your release when you
cvsup.  The lockd dies in that version, so use a release of just . and
src-sbin instead of src-all if you need lockd support.  Also, don't run
samba and quotas or you panic the kernel.

Also, experimentation reveals that questions about 5.2 asked here are
ignored, but if you ask them in the freebsd-stable list then people will
answer you (but also chastise you for not asking them here where they
actually belong).  That is how I got all my help at least.  :/
