I found a bug in one section (2.1) of installation.html:

2.1. Upgrading from Source

The procedure for doing a source code based update is described in and .

For SVN use the releng/10.0 branch which will be where any upcoming Security Advisories or Errata Notices will be applied.

It looks like they copied from a template and forgot to fill in the blanks in the first sentence above.

I would know to look in /usr/src/UPDATING or $SRCDIR/UPDATING .
