Hi,

This question probably hasn't much to do with CVS directly but using
cvsup.  I want/need to update a 6.0-RELEASE system.  However, this
system has some critical data on it and I'd rather not move to code
that is perhaps experimental or "bleeding-edge" technology.  I see in
/usr/share/examples/cvsup several supfiles named various things.  I
see from the handbook that standard-supfile applies to, what seems
like, the bleeding-edge and the stable-supfile is what I'm looking for
.. yes?

How do I ensure I update the sources to the most current, STABLE, branch?

Andy
