The simplest way for seeing almost-guaranteed working -current is
1) read -current of 1-2 days ago,
2) find moment where there are no "Who put boot onto Red Button???" cries,
3) set up date= in supfile for good moment, but at least 24 hours ago,
4) cvsup & make world.

But with this approach you only can deal with longstanding issues and
you are excluded from quick discovering-and-fixing. Let's suppose
this is adoptable for you and others.
