The above command gives you the latest source on the pkgsrc-2006Q1 branch.
It's not "older" than -current, it's just a different branch in CVS, which
happens to be more conservative in updates. :-)
Ok, now that got me confused. :) (And just when I thought I am done
with my questions hehe!). I really did think that the 2006-Q1 branch
is older than -current. My impression was that its a stable freeze of
-current, made sometime in March 2006, and after that all it has is
just security updates. So that way -current has nearly 2 months worth
of newer software than 2006-Q1. Turns out I was wrong? (By "stable
freeze" above, I meant that all the software in that are stable and
work well with each other etc).
I remember someone pointing out that 2006Q1 is a different branch (I
think he used the word "revision") ... but I didn't pay much attention
coz I thought he meant it was a different "older" branch ...
