what about this update from June 11? would this determine what version the install is? i mean i know Patrick makes that determination, but when aaa_base gets an update like this, what does it mean?

Whoops... I missed that one. That is when it must have first changed.

I've got 13rc2 installed just now. Is it a sensible thing to do to follow the instructions in UPGRADE.txt to bring it up to 13 proper?

I'll have a play with slackpkg at some point, but I prefer to do package management more manually just now.

If you prefer the manual way, just keep following the current changelog up until August 26th and then you will have Slackware 13.0.

Yes, I've rsync'd my packages already, just wondering if there was something special other than usual upgrading that needs to be done because I'm going from -current to 13.0, rather than from 12.2 to 13.0.

(Just being a bit paranoid perhaps.)

"13.0.0.0.0" is also the end of the Mayan long count calendar in Dec of 2012. Kind of creepy.
