:Can someone explain in short form, what's the difference at this point
:between cvsupping with "tag=." and "tag=DragonFly_Stable"? I saw it
:mentioned on IRC, and I'd like to document it, but I don't have much to
:give in explanation, and I know it's not like -STABLE for FreeBSD.
I am hoping to make DragonFly_Stable (maybe I should name it something
else) just be a float tag indicating a 'reasonably stable point'
i.e. where the buildworld / buildrelease / buildkernel sequence is likely
to work and not produce something that is unusable or too buggy.
DragonFly is *not* branching the tree any time soon but I still want
to be able to provide something useful to those people who are beginning
to use it in a production environment.
