Yes, managing -current can seem easier*, if you are upgrading from snapshot to snapshot and using snapshot packages. But there are risks to doing so, since -current is the development branch. As TronDD noted above, it is possible that backup/recovery requirements or other risk mitigations needed for -current on remote systems might outweigh the benefits of having it deployed remotely.

See the source-changes and ports-changes lists on the Mailing Lists page of the Project website. Daily and weekly digest subscriptions, of instant notification of each patch committed are available.

* The Project does not have the resources to build -stable releases or packages, leaving the building of these to the user community. The company M:Tier offers binary builds of -stable releases and packges as a public service to the OpenBSD community.
