What do you mean?  The handbook says "don't use tag=.,
except for ports", but the standard file has such. 
Which is it?  Use it or don't?  And if I do what
branch will I be getting?

Looking at that url I see two tags of note: RELENG_5_2
and RELENG_5_2_1_RELEASE.  is the _RELEASE tag just
the 5.2.1 as it was released and no updates since?  Is
RELENG_5_2 current ie = 5.2.1?  

What I don't understand is what tag I should use to
follow the 5.X series.  Must I change the tag
everytime a new version comes out?  Is there not a tag
I can use that get the lastest in the 5.x CURRENT
series always?
