HEAD is for people who like troubleshooting strange errors.
RELEASE_x.x is for people who don't like anything to go bad, ever.
I run RELEASE_x.x on my home server, for instance, because I can't have
that go down.
I thought RELEASE_x.x_Slip is considered the most stable tag, because
it only picks up release commits (ie security or bugfix); but it won't
contain half a commit as the cvs tree might, if you checkout while files
with those tags are being committed.
What's the difference between RELEASE_x.x and RELEASE_x.x_Slip?  I'm all
unsure now.
RELEASE_x.x will give you that release while RELEASE_x.x_Slip will give
you RELEASE_x.x.y for the highest available y, which will be the release
plus bugfixes. So RELEASE_1.2 will give you DragonFly 1.2 while
RELEASE_1.2_Slip will give you DragonFly 1.2.5.
