This is probably the most convenient method both for initializing
and updating your ports tree if you don't need split-second deltas
(which only SVN can deliver). :-)

It's an essential port of the _operating system_ itself.
Partially off-topic addition (which I think I can address to the list
in case a direct message doesn't come through): When using "reply all",
I got an error message from your MTA (via the relay of my ISP). This
is the message (trimmed):
<kline at thought.org>: host smtp.secureserver.net[126.96.36.199] said: 552 5.2.0
This message has been rejected
due to content judged to be spam by the internet community??IB212
<http://x.co/crbounce> (in reply to end of DATA command)
Remote-MTA: dns; smtp.secureserver.net
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 552 5.2.0

* end message *
The "Internet community" _judges_ message list replies spam?
I'm not sure. The reason is explained this way:
The email message contains a link, attachment,
or pattern caught by our filters as spam.
What "pattern" might that be? A code snippet? A stupid code
snippet? A HTTP or FTP link? As I said, I'm not sure.
Maybe you could check the settings of the installation handling
thought.org mail is handled by 10 mailstore1.secureserver.net.
thought.org mail is handled by 0 smtp.secureserver.net.
Just to make sure you can continue receiving helpful replies
from this list... :-)
