Just update or checkout with the "netbsd-1-5" tag. E.g, if you already
have a checkout with no tag, or any unpacked tarball:

   cvs update -Pd -A -rnetbsd-1-5

If your sources are from a clean sup, you won't have the CVS
directories, unfortunately. In that case, I would suggest you download
the source tarballs from the NetBSD-1.5 release and update via
anoncvs. All the directions and alternatives (ssh, pserver) on the web
page apply; just add the '-r' option to get the tag you want.

Discussions are still underway on how to handle all active branches
with sup. There are now *two* release branches -- netbsd-1-4 and
netbsd-1-5 -- in addition to current. Expect an official announcement
sometime in the near future.
