 what does each cvsup example file grab?
ports - ports (duh!)
doc - docs (duh)
cvs - ?
stable - 4.8 (or 4.7)?
standard - 5.0 release?

I'm wondering what I'd need to do to get the current branch?  TIA.

See the README file in that examples directory.

Remember to subscribe to the -CURRENT mailing list if you're going to
run the bleeding edge.

The entire FreeBSD cvs repository.  You can use cvs to
checkout all versions of 4.x and 5.x.  IIRC, this is
several GB.

stable-supfile should pick up the 4.x branch.

standard-supfile picks up the bleeding edge,
is FreBSD-current.

There is no branching of ports. Everyone uses the same ports
tree (-STABLE and -CURRENT)

Not sure about this one... there may be separate
branches for -CURRENT and -STABLE.

This must be cvsup'ng the entire cvs repository.
Probably not useful unless you are a developer or
mirroring the repository (ie if you have a large
network of machines you want to keep up-to-date)

Both (at some point ;o) -STABLE I would consider to be the
cutting edge (as opposed to the bleeding edge of -CURRENT)
If you build -STABLE right now, you will get something along
the lines of 4.8-RC1. Eventually it will be 4.8-RELEASE.

This one I am not familiar with.

From the handbook:

For our example, we wish to receive FreeBSD-CURRENT.
We add this line at the beginning of our supfile:

         *default tag=.
