A backup of your last bsd.rd is made. All steps are verbose.
**snaps** helps you to see if you need and/or can upgrade your -current BASE and PACKAGES system to next snapshots. It can show you when your system has been upgraded, which BASE snapshot you are using and compare it to your *$MIRROR* freshness in order to let you choose to run **sysupgrade** or not.
If you need to, it can also ckeck available mirrors and show you their BASE and PACKAGES build dates. Moreover, you can also read the online FAQ **Following -current and using snapshots** and see if you have to make some tweaks.
Nevertheless, **curl** and **links** (or **lynx**) from packages, are mandatory to run **snaps**.
It can be run with only the base system. Nevertheless if you install *curl*
from packages, it will check your $MIRROR build date of base and packages. You
will be able to decide if you want to do the update now or wait for the
synchronicity of the two directories.
