Staying Current (with current)

Hey all:

I'm new to slackware, after having run Redhat, Mandrake, etc. for a while.

I've been playing with slackware-current, and was wondering if anyone has a script or utility that will automatically download and install updated packages.

I know that I can check the changelog and do it 'by hand', but what's the fun in that? Is anyone doing this with rsync?
