I'm not trying to contradict you Felix, I just wondered if any of the
release engineers (is it just Theo? :) ) could confirm that it is indeed
the One True 2.9 Tag. I seem to recall Theo answering a recent question
that went something like "how do we know which sources are on the CD"
with "you don't."
It could, for example, be the branch point where 2.9 leaves -current,
with OPENBSD_2_9 being the -stable branch from which the CD builds are
made on a particular date. So Jacob may have been closer to the truth
with his CVS command line.
