After reading so many of your intelligent posts, then I typically default 
to believing in your methods.

To get svn:// to work then the fileserver, i.e.,  -fbsd9 and at the moment 
becoming -fbsd91 required service svn added outbound in pf.conf.  The 
gateway is -obsd51 and needed the port number out in pf.conf, since svn is 
not included in /etc/services.  :)

The releases seem neat to me because fbsd reports to have security 
officers tracking the specified version.  I am not necessarily enamoured 
with it.  I have followed -stable and -current before.

I can use portsnap as before, or experiment.  I might try:

svn co svn://svn.freebsd.org/ports /usr/ports

I probably know everything for my purposes at this point.

As the fileserver is building, some of the points seem obvious now. 
Thanks to you and Lowell.
