Ye olde CVS had a convenient way to specify categories or
ports to obtain or to ignore. With SVN, it's also possible,
but a little bit more complicated:
1. Create a file where you list the ports to be ignored,
let's say /root/ports_ignore.txt:
I'm not sure if you can use "*" in there (it _should_
be possible though), but in worst case, list all the
subdirectories to ignore. I'm also not sure if a trailing
slash ("dirname/") is needed, but I doubt it.
2. Then apply the ignore properties to the currently present
# cd /usr/ports
# svn propset svn:ignore -R -F /root/ports_ignore.txt .
This should result in the listed directories to be marked
as "ignore" and therefore _not_ receive any deltas.
3. You can now run your update command.
I have not tested this. ;-)
You can of course leave out the text file and list the directory
names in the "svn propset" command manually (no -F needed then).
