I have a mixture of ports and packages so it looks as though the best
way of keeping them in step would be to update my ports tree late
Wednesday night then wait until Sunday night before attempting to
upgrade ports and packages?
I understand that the package repositories are built from a snapshot
of the ports tree. To assist users in keeping things in step I wonder
if information could be made available for users to access the
snapshot which was used for the published version of the repository so
we could synchronise our ports tree with the one used for the
currently available packages?
