The common response to this is that it's in the handbook. I'm trying
to find it there, though, and am having a lot of trouble. "upgrade"
and "patch" search terms don't find it. There is some mention of using
cvsup in "Cutting edge", but given the title I don't think that's what
is recommended for everyone.

I could just be missing the magic search keyword for this, though.
Maybe someone here has it?

In any case, I believe you can run cvsup, using the example file
/usr/share/examples/cvsup/standard-supfile , using the tag RELENG_5_4
. I'm not exactly sure what the official patch recommendation is
