Here are my questions:
1.) is there a way to specify 4.2-STABLE, which is what I have been using?
excellent answer to part 2
can anyone tell me how to get the STABLE version I want?
Did you read the first sentence of that FAQ entry? "Short answer: it's
just a name."
If you cvsup the RELENG_4 branch, you're getting FreeBSD-stable, whether
it be called -STABLE, -RC, -BETA, -FISHCAKE, -UNSTABLE-AS-HELL, or
even -CURRENT if someone felt like playing an April Fool's day joke in
I would rather be consistent across my servers than have some be one
release past the others.
Well if it said 4.2-STABLE and you builtworld on one and not the
others you still wouldn't be consistent, they'd still be different
codebases but with the same name. If it _really_ bothers you just
change /sys/conf/newvers.sh appropriately so your kernel reports itself
as 4.2-STABLE, if all you want is the same name but different codebases.
