when new slackware, what does slackpkg current mirror become?

Hi, I was curious about letting slackpkg mirror be current, I've happy with how system has been but never thought about what slackpkg mirror needs to be when newer version of slackware comes out.

Whenever a new version of Slackware comes out there will be a up grade howto for instructions on how to upgrade. If your already running current then you will always be at the latest version. If I'm not mistaken, when the new version comes out you will need reset your mirror list back to current if your running current

Thank you, I figured just leave mirror as current but wanted to make sure.

I got the system all nice and pretty and would like to keep it instead of reinstalling everything as I usually do.
