The latter.  If you are not using FreeBSD-Update to handle the updates
of a machine you'll need to update your source tree using SVN for
release branches (releng/*) from now on.  Updates of the CVS repository
will continue for the existing stable/* and head for now.  I don't think
anything has been decided on when that will stop.
