	Given the upcoming cvs deprecation in a little over a month, how about 
	putting a reminder in /usr/ports/UPDATING now?

	Mention that cvs mirrors will be going away and point to the portsnap 
	and svn update methods shown in the Handbook:

I probably missed something.

Usually I do a minimal install,
then pull the ports tree via csup,
then install subversion, etc.

If neither csup nor subversion are
in base, then how do I get the ports
tree in the first instance, if I
forgot or intentionally didn't install
ports as part of bsdinstall?
