There is of course the option to use the pkgsrc development branch (trunk),
which will cut down on those 3 months PLUS if you update a package yourself,
submit a PR for it and it will in most cases be in the main tree very quickly.
This is what I've been doing for the last year and I have constantly had better
results running trunk than the quarterly (although partially because I'm using
DragonFly and there's been a constant stream of fixes for DFly being
incorporated, über 9000 thanks to marino & everyone else!). I've never seen
instability from pkgsrc itself (although IIRC it didn't undergo major
infrastructure changes in the time I've been using it, so watch out for those).
