Walter, show me in the handbook where my answer doesn't reflect the
reality of using tags for fetching ports. Thanks.
Read this (I know it's old):
NOTE: Don't worry about releases/version when cvsup'ing your
ports. There is only one version of the Ports collection. All
versions of FreeBSD use the same ports collection. Therefore,
when updating your ports use this tag:
You can use that tag for your src supfile too but you will get 8.0
which you don't want to do unless you are a developer.
