Ok, subversion came also to my mind but I guess portsnap is faster then
svn is. The thing with svn is, that I would always need to examine the
logs if there where conflicts generated.

I don't want to keep my local changes. I would like to have command
which just gets me a 1:1 copy of the "current" ports tree and deletes
or overwrites my local changes. There is nothing I want to get merged.
