Default Following -current for the first time...

There comes a time in a man's life to follow -current... So for the first time, I carefully read the FAQ, some things I found in mailing lists and everything in general I could find about following -current. The reason I'm posting here is to check if I did all things correctly.

First things first. A few notes:

- I have no custom kernel.
- I made a clean installation from the previous -current snapshot.
- I installed the ports tree that came with the snapshot (same date).

The steps I followed:

- booted from cd (newest -current) and followed instructions for update.
- rebooted.
- as root, I did the following (ftp is just a matter of preference):
sysmerge -s -x
- installed the temporary files
- updated ports with
cd /usr/
cvs -qd get -P ports
- And for the final touch, I did a
pkg_add -u

So far, the system's looking nice and smooth. All files are there. I'm just asking because with no previous experience on this, I need to know if the steps I followed were correct.

Thank you.
