Hum, let me reformulate this in my own words, to see if I
understand. You are running 5-STABLE, and this is the second
time 5-STABLE was generated from RELENG_5 branch since 5.4
(I did looked at http://www.freebsd.org/releng/index.html
to write this)
Ok, fine, I was thinking that maybe there was some kind
of 5.4.2 release, but no, there will be no official release
to 5.4 until 5.5.
