While I track CURRENT, not STABLE, the process should not be
significantly different. Here is what I do.

Here, instead of "# mount -a -t ufs" I use "# zfs mount -a".

For ports, I do the following.
# svn update /usr/ports/
# cd /usr/ports
# make fetchindex
# pkg_version -l '<'
Then update any ports which need updating. There is, AFAICT, minimal
difference between what I used to do with csup, and what I do now with
svn. Of course, the first time I used subversion was doing this... so I
may be doing it wrong. ;)
