I imagine that after Git becomes primary, Portsnap will remain usable 
for a respectable period.

(Compare with 
<https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-current/2020-December/077913.html>, 
which discusses continuing use of Subversion for src.)

Expect a 'ports Specific' section at 
<https://github.com/bsdimp/freebsd-git-docs/blob/main/SUMMARY.md>; in due 
course :-)
