FreeBSD 6.X Updating Source

I just installed a server with FreeBSD 6.0.  Everything went perfect.
Got it up and running and wanted to download the newest source prior to
installing a lot of ports and software.  Used cvsup with stable-supfile.
Went throught the normal update procedure and when it was done it says
that I am running FreeBSD 6.1-PRERELEASE #0.  I'm using the RELENG_6
tag, and it was to my understanding that this only followed 6-stable.
Is a prerelease considered stable, or am I doing something wrong?
