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>: host[] said: 552 5.2.0
    This message has been rejected
    due to content judged to be spam by the internet community??IB212
    <> (in reply to end of DATA command)
Action: failed
Status: 5.2.0
Remote-MTA: dns;
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 552 5.2.0
    This message has been rejected due to content judged to be spam by the
    internet community??IB212  <>

* 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
your mail? mail is handled by 10 mail is handled by 0

Just to make sure you can continue receiving helpful replies
from this list... :-)
