 From the web page - 
Between formal releases, a series of snapshot releases are made
available. Snapshots are test releases of the -current source tree.
Because they reflect the current state of development, there is no
guarantee that snapshot releases will work correctly (or even at all).
Snapshots are quite useful when moving from a formal release (or older
version of -current) to the current tree.

I thought stable was where I wanted to be, rather than current.

Agreed, I patch my Windows box when they release a patch for an
application that I use.
It makes sense to patch the BSD box when they release a patch for an
issue that affects me.
That's what I intend to do.  What is the best way to do that?  
Get the patches from 'errata' and install them manually?
