Question about a possible missing line/entry for file UPDATING (from - 8.4-RELEASE plus branches

Dear Sirs,

Just for curious, today I was looking for the date/entry that belongs to
FreeBSD 8.4-RELEASE inside UPDATING file, with no luck.

Maybe I've made a mistake and I was looking inside a wrong file/url?

It doesn't appear, neither

branch, currently last revision).

(This 'little detail' includes sources for 8.4-RELEASE and branch
8.4-RELEASE-p3, which I've downloaded recently).

A quick & dirty search I've did on a 8.4-RELEASE-p3 box:

grep "8\..*-RELEASE" /usr/src/UPDATING

(There is no reference for '8.4')

Thanks in advance!
