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.
