How do users of 8.99.51 and earlier 8.99.x decide whether to go with 9.99.1 or 9.0_BETA?

I am on

NetBSD amelia2 8.99.51 NetBSD 8.99.51 (NetBSD-HEAD amd64.nb899-20190723) #1: Tue Jul 23 13:35:29 GMT 2019  root@amelia2:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/SANDY7 amd64

as I type this; also built i386 from the same source tree.

If you were previously on 8.99.x then you were tracking -current and
not any particular release.  IMHO you should now track the 9.99.x
series, as that is the new -current!

If you intend to deploy a stable 9.0 release (rather than tracking
-current) I would recommend installing 9.0-BETA to help us make the
release as "solid" as possible.
