This thread was called "results of ports re-engineering survey" but I
figured I would start a new thread.

Out of curiosity, are any of these shortcomings documented anywhere? I
have been using ports on my home machine for a long time and I've never
had any problems with it. I assume the issues come into play when you
work with multiple systems you are trying to keep in sync, etc.
I would be interested in reading about some of the limitations people
have run into when using ports.
