With some delay in the reply: for a production server I try to keep
with the legacy version of FreeBSD. 

And I stick to RELENG, not STABLE, because I want to patch security
bugs, but I most probably does not need all the new bells and whistles
of STABLE: this is a production server, I prefer to modify the machine
as least as possible, unless it is expressely needed by a secuity
issue (I won't apply security patches if they are not pertinent to a
specific server and the services running on that machine).
