About a couple days before seeing this message, or the message on the FreeBSD web site, but after seeing RC2 on the server,
I already ran csup with

*default release=cvs tag=RELENG_9

Am I screwed, am I OK, or do I simply have to rerun csup with RELENG_9_0 instead of RELENG_9 ?

Again, I can't find that file (needle in the haystack) in /usr/src tree that shows version number such as RC2.
