Is sbopkg & slackbuild for Slackware 13.37 stable or current?

I would like to check with you guys here:

If i want to install repository, can i install it in -current? or mainly for -stable version.

Thank you.

SlackBuild is tested against -Stable, but since it's a script to compile a package, so in most cases, it should work also on -Current

sbopkg works with build script repositories: the one in the default setup is's 13.37 one, but also other repositories are available
# sbopkg -V ?  
Valid options are:
SBo/13.37       (SBo repository for Slackware 13.37)
SBo/13.1        (SBo repository for Slackware 13.1)
SBo/13.0        (SBo repository for Slackware 13.0)
SBo/12.2        (SBo repository for Slackware 12.2)
SBo/12.1        (SBo repository for Slackware 12.1)
SBo/12.0        (SBo repository for Slackware 12.0)
SBo/11.0        (SBo repository for Slackware 11.0)
local/local     (default local repository)
SBo-git/current (UNSUPPORTED SBo git repository for -current)
SB64/master     (UNSUPPORTED Slamd64Builds repository)
slakmagik, one of the sbopkg maintainers, kindly added also this repository I'm maintaining, a fork of git with some modifications to use it with sbopkg on -current (details): you can spot easily modded scripts here.
you can also use it on the fly with
sbopkg -V SBo-git/current -i myapp
