RELENG_6 (aka 6.2 stable) is the *development* branch for any FreeBSD 6.x 
releases.  As we are closing in on 6.3 this branch obviously serves as 
the base for 6.3 pre-releases.

You have a choice to either use the 6.2 security fix branch (RELENG_6_2) 
or the "stable" branch (RELENG_6) - which really is not recommended for 
production systems.  If you really want to go back (not sure why you 
would want to, though) you should be able to cvsup RELENG_6_2 and do a 
src upgrade (or downgrade in this case).  This, however, might leave you 
with some leftover files that were added to RELENG_6.
