How to update the Sbopkg Slackware queues?

Any insight regarding how to best update the Sbopkg Slackware queues?

This is my first taste of git, and I'll keep doing my homework, but I wanted to see if anyone else could shead any insight.
root@Slack:/var/lib/sbopkg# ls -lah    
total 210K
drwxr-xr-x  5 root root  136 Dec 25 10:14 .
drwxr-xr-x 33 root root  848 Dec  8 21:59 ..
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root   72 Nov 27 05:09 SBo
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 105K Nov 29 00:43 queues
drwxr-xr-x  4 root root 105K Dec 25 10:14 queues-bkup_12-25-12
root@Slack:/var/lib/sbopkg# git pull git:// queues
fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git
I'll plan on updating the documentation with any info gleaned.

Edit: Perhaps it is best to delete the queues directory and then just use git clone? (That worked for me.)
root@Slack:/var/lib/sbopkg# git clone git:// queues
fatal: destination path 'queues' already exists and is not an empty directory.
root@Slack:/var/lib/sbopkg# rm -r queues
root@Slack:/var/lib/sbopkg# ls
SBo  queues-bkup_12-25-12
root@Slack:/var/lib/sbopkg# git clone git:// queues
Cloning into 'queues'...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this does not update the queue files -- it updates the slackbuild scripts. From what I gather, the queue files are technically a completely independent project not part of sbopkg.

That did the trick. Thank you, sir.

Already up-to-date.
