Thank you for your response.
I have been learning and understanding OpenBSD for around one month now.
As such, I had installed -release, and used syspatch to reach -stable.
I have spent some time right now trying to understand the mechanism to
reach -current from -stable.
From what I understand, I first need to upgrade to the latest snapshot.
From there, I need to use source build instructions at
https://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq5.html#Bld to reach -current.
There's no need to build from source, just upgrading via the latest
I would like to do the above because I am also interested in the spamd
and IPv6 diff that phessler@ has. But right now, I am quite a bit
inexperienced, so you would have to be patient with me.
From what I understand, to install snapshot I need to download
https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/snapshots/amd64/bsd.rd, boot that
at the boot prompt and then (U)pgrade from there.
That is correct.
If you don't intent to work on the source, there's no need to build it
