[Mesa-users] Difference between "setting" and "relaxing" rotation

I'm working on a project that is looking at the effects of rotation on main sequence evolution and I've run into a question I can't seem to answer from the documentation. There appear to be two ways to activate rotation in Mesa -- namely one can use the group of inputs that begin with 'set' (e.g., set_omega, set_omega_step_limit) or one can use another group of inputs that begin with 'relax' (e.g., relax_omega, num_steps_to_relax_rotation). What is the difference between setting and relaxing?
