The transition is progressing, not complete.

For what's not yet in the Handbook, unless advised otherwise please make 
<>; your first point of 
reference; there's a big picture document with dates, and so on.

<>; no 
mention of portsnap, however if I recall correctly, this was discussed a 
few weeks ago in freebsd-current (maybe also in freebsd-questions). 
Expect support for use of portsnap to continue for some time beyond 
completion of the transition.
