Use "OPENBSD_3_1" as the tag to get the -stable sources. Your
existing cvsup procedure should require no other change.
Read the upgrade mini-faq at
htpp://www.openbsd.org/faq/upgrade-minifaq.html, noting in particular
the things to do before actually remaking the system. Glancing
at the latest incarnation of the minifaq, you will want to pay
attention to sections 3.0.x : "Upgrading *from* 3.0". The section
3.1.x, "Upgrading *from* 3.1" seems to cover the change from
3.1-stable or -release to -current. You don't want that. (Somebody
holler LOUDLY if I'm wrong). NOTA BENE: section 3.0.1 and 3.0.3.
Many are those who are flamed for not reading them first.
If you are hesitant, consider instead dloading the ftp sets for
3.1-release, installing those, and then cvsup to -stable after getting
the release running.
In each of us, there burns a soul of a woodchuck.
In every generation a few are chosen to prove it.
