I used to use pkgsrc-current but am now trying the quarterly stable
branch on a new NetBSD 3.0 i386 system.

What's the approved, best, or just a good way to upgrade (some of) my
packages from pkgsrc-2006Q1 to pkgsrc-2006Q2?  Is it sufficient and
safe to do:

    cd /usr/pkgsrc && cvs update -r pkgsrc-2006Q2 -Pd

If so, will this make the new tag "stick" for future updates?

Assuming this is okay, can I then just run:

    lintpkgsrc -Vi

and use make update to upgrade packages to new versions?

Or are there some subtleties I'm missing?  Thanks!
