:I'm sort of confused by the CVS tags I think. I pulled down a tree
:using -r DragonFly_RELEASE_1_2_Slip, but uname -r reports
:rg-dhcp2# uname -r
:when I run the new kernel on top of the old base system
:(1.2.0-RELEASE). Spot checking some of the files leads me to believe
:that the files used in the build are indeed from the RELEASE_1_2 tag.
:Does what I'm seeing indicate that there is some sort of inconsistancy
:in my build tree?

    Check the tag embedded in the /usr/src/sys/conf/ file.
    around line 38ish:

    tag="\$Name:  ........ $"

    This tag is supposed to be populated with the tag name for the tag
    the file was checked out as.
