swaret.conf with current


ok. i finally am not helping but asking, here. i run the full swaret under version=9.1, and every thing is hunky dory. my slack 9.1 is happy.
but i get brave and plug in version=current, and all i get is one mirror failure after another. am i doing something naughty here? how (if possible) do i turn this pig into a slack-current hummer? or do i have to install a complete new tree (no forest puns, please)? it would be nice if i could just crontab the box & let it flop and twitch for a while.

HELP!
thenkque. -O.

thank you. all i needed was more urls. this is REALLY stupid. i had it all correct, just too many folks with the same idea. the usual: new "release" glut, apparently. i had several scattered "FAILED"'s, but a successful upgrade -a. thanks for showing me how impatience is sometimes rewarded with wisdom.
luck -O.
