Default 9.1 release branch activity will not be exported from SVN to CVS

From FreeBSD 9.1-RC1 Available...:

Quote:
With both the doc and ports repositories now moved to SVN it has been
decided to not export the 9.1 release branch activity to CVS.
So
csup/cvsup update mechanisms are not available for updating to 9.1-RC1.
If you would like to use SVN the branch to use is releng/9.1.
From the reply of Ken Smith whether CVS for upgrading FreeBSD is dead:

The latter. If you are not using FreeBSD-Update to handle the updates
of a machine you'll need to update your source tree using SVN for
release branches (releng/*) from now on. Updates of the CVS repository
will continue for the existing stable/* and head for now. I don't think
anything has been decided on when that will stop.
