Dear Mailing List,

Yesterday I csup:ed 2 machines to latest using same cvsup-server for 
both. After the standard procedure of doing:

make buildworld
make buildkernel
make installkernel
make installworld

..on both machines, one says 'FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #2' and the other says 
'FreeBSD 6.2-STABLE #6'.

What does the number after the #-sign mean?
