to determine roughly where a server is in its updates (we're running only
RELEASE) i do:

1 - check the 1st 4 fields of the tag file in the freebsd-update working

2 - check the output of freebsd-update IDS.

is it the case that freebsd-update IDS checks base system status relative
to what's referenced in the tag file?
