I understand that the RELEASE directory contains only packages that were
compiled with a specific version was released. Can you explain the
differences between port directories for stable and current?

Will I find different packages on /pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-7-current
and /pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-8-current? What about
/pub/FreeBSD/ports/i386/packages-6-stable ?

I can't find this in the handbook, I apologize in case it's there and I
missed it.
