Getting -current from -stable?

Hi all,

With the new release, I'd like to install -current and keep up to date with it. Since -current and -stable are the same right now, is it ok to install -stable and then just upgrade the packages (i.e. follow the changelog) once the development starts in -current again, or is there a better way to do it? Edit: I do know about Eric's mirror-slackware-current! All I'm asking is whether I can start from -stable and get -current.

(Also, in case you're wondering, I do plan to have -stable installed alongside -current!)

I know of no other way to do it.
