So the way we've been doing it is with git.
I started by forking the ports tree from here:
After cloning the fork to disk, I added a new "remote" for the original
% git remote add freebsd https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd-ports.git
I then added any custom ports / patches to our fork. When I want to
import changes from upstream I just go to my fork and do a new pull:
% git pull freebsd master
Merge any conflicts and commit.
