Actually, Dave, you can specify a timestamp. Add a line of this format
to your supfile to do just that:
The timestamp in the above line corresponds to 12:12 on the 16th of
Please note that you must include all digits -- no shortcuts. There is
more info in the manpage.

I dunno. I've had a relatively sane trip on -CURRENT for some time.
There have been rockier periods... but the amount of time that I'm
out-of-commission due to -CURRENT has been very small... and usually
fixed by an overnight rebuild or somesuch.
... but -CURRENT is, as they say, for the developers. I'm not sure of
the benifit for non-developers to be at -CURRENT.
I do maintain a few other peoples machines at varying stages of
-CURRENT. I find it helpful to have a machine to test an update on
first. One small flaw in cvsup is that you can't specify a timestamp
to sync the files to. That would make things more sane.
