Thank you Sascha and Matt.

Your replies leave me a little perplexed.

As I understand it, a FreeBSD Security Branch update normally only
updates kernel sources and the resulting kernel is named something like
'RELENG_X_X-px' rather than increasing the last digit of the release
name by one.

I am wondering if Dragonfly's RELEASE source updates are akin to
FreeBSD Stable Branch updates where patches haven't been thoroughly
tested and one could end up with problems?

Thank you again.
