I am starting to switch, and after all the discussions in this thread, I
replaced my csup cron entry with the following:

portsnap fetch && portsnap extract && portsnap update

Initially I just had `csup -z -L 2 /usr/share/examples/cvsup/9.x-ports`
where 9.x-ports was an edited version of ports-supfile.

Now I have an /etc/portsnap.con with the equivalent edits from my 9.x-ports

Is this how best to do it?


And now I need to find an alternative to handle the src updates using svn
or something...
