FYI..everyone should get in the habit of checking this file for
changes after they update their ports tree.

In particular, the inaugural entry addresses the problems many people
have experienced when trying to upgrade portupgrade.

  FreeBSD ports repository

  Added files:
    .                    UPDATING 
  Add an UPDATING file that will be used to document additional steps that
  users may need to perform when updating their ports collection.  The
  intent is similar to the /usr/src/UPDATING file.
  Kick it off with a description of how to update past the ruby 1.6->1.8
  changeover on i386, cribbed from knu's commit message.
  Revision  Changes    Path
  1.1       +31 -0     ports/UPDATING (new)
