The handbook has a list of cvs tags in the appendix. You will want 
RELENG_5_3 or RELENG_5, choosing the latter and updating regularly will 
give a gradual upgrade.

You probably don't want "." which is CURRENT, the bleeding edge (aka 
6.0-CURRENT), and may give you some surprises. The tag "HEAD" is a 
symbolic reference to ".". At least, I suggest you wait jumping head 
first till you feel comfortable with the whole process.

Cheers, Erik
