Doh, right under my nose. The freebsd handbook is great, but, I think it
should have a chapter on updating and upgrading. "The Cutting Edge" just
talks abouts stable vs. current and not the "security" branch. The handbook
does a good job at addressing newbie concerns. Going so far as to include a
section on unix basics. Unfortunately, it falls short on the topic of
updateing/upgrading. CVS is a tool for maintaining your system not a goal.
So, relying on a section on CVS tags to explain to newbies what their
update/upgrade options are is inconsistant with the newbie friendly approach
demonstrated throughtout the handbook.
