--- Comment #10 from Muhammad Moinur Rahman <bofh@freebsd.org> ---
Whether we will use gitup as the next tool or not I think is a different
question. But I want to stop encouraging portsnap at least. I maintain quite a
number of ports and often have to deal with mails(not bugs) where users are
using portsnap and have somewhat a broken tree. Switching to a git clone simply
fixes the problem. I have also created and submitted a bug #263315 for this
purpose. I am not against gitup but unless it's in the base it doesn't make any
sense. We will need something else to get the ports tree to build itself.
