Thank you. However, that entire page out of the handbook pretty much
clarifies that a production environment should *not* track either STABLE

So I'm assuming I'm best off with RELENG_6_0 etc, etc? Does anyone here
actually run STABLE or CURRENT in a production environment? I've
personally had the most luck with RELENG_4 which is still my main box,
but now my curiosity has got the best of me.
