If you don't use any of the available SBo package managers, you're 
making your life unnecessarily complicated ;-)

Also, use of git can be handy (since SBo is git -enabled).
I actually started using git, because one of SBo package managers, 
namely _slackrepo_, uses it.

So in general, I use slackrepo to be up to date, and then git, to 
maintain my local modifications.
