Where can I find a list of the cvsup tags for ports?

You can use the refuse file to omit branches. I've attached my cvsupfile and
my refuse file to give you an idea as to how this works. I placed my
cvsupfile in /usr/local/etc and the refuse file goes in /user/local/etc/sup.
I then call cvsup -g -L 2 /usr/local/etc/cvsupfile. The directory locations
are based on the settings within the cvsupfile.

Subject: Where can I find a list of the cvsup tags for ports?

I want to omit some of the ports from my cvsup run. I've always used the
ports-all tag, but these days there a a good many non English language ports
that only use space on my disks.

I would like to limit the collections. Probably by excluding certain ports
subtags, rather than explicitly including the ones I want, as I think this
would be more robust relative to future additions.

Where can I find a list? And what's the syntax of the exclude statement?
