Hi Dru,

While reading your newest article I noticed you used this in your supfile:

*default tag=RELENG_5_2_1_RELEASE

If you use this tag on a 5.2.1 REL machine you won't update anything on the system. 'RELENG_5_2_1_RELEASE' is used when you want to cvsup to that RELEASE from, say, 5.1 or 5.0.

I think you wanted to use this tag to track security updates:

*default tag=RELENG_5_2

The Handbook explains these and other tags.

5_2 applies to 5.2.1 REL as well as 5.2 REL, incidentally.

    *default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
    *default prefix=/usr
    *default tag=RELENG_4_1_RELEASE
    *default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress

    to update the 4.10 release, but when i run the cvsup it delete's all my src's.
