This is my sup file:

*default tag=RELENG_6
*default host=cvsup9.us.FreeBSD.org
*default prefix=/usr
*default base=/var/db
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress
src-all
here is how I run it:

Code:
csup -g -L 2 /root/cvs/src.supfile

this has worked for... well, since 6.0 was released. It's always downloaded the lasted production/release quality source files.

I download and rebuilt a week or two ago and to my suprise was running this!

fire2# uname -a
FreeBSD fire2 6.4-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.4-PRERELEASE #38: Thu Nov 20 01:59:55 CST 2008 root@fire2:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/FIRE i386

oh noes! how did that happen? I just want production releases, not pre-releases!

csup did what you told it to do.

Note FreeBSD 6.4 was officially released just a few days ago, so if you csup with the same way as you did before, now you will get FreeBSD 6.4-RELEASE

ok... how do I tell it to only get official stable releases from 6_xxx branch?

As mentioned above, change the tag from RELENG_6 to RELENG_6_4 and that will follow the 6.4 series.

How do I follow the entire stable/release 6_* branch?

By changing RELENG_6_$x to RELENG_6_$x+1 on each release. There's no other way.

No, you will get 6.4-STABLE
