The transition is progressing, not complete.
For what's not yet in the Handbook, unless advised otherwise please make
<https://github.com/bsdimp/freebsd-git-docs#readme> your first point of
reference; there's a big picture document with dates, and so on.
mention of portsnap, however if I recall correctly, this was discussed a
few weeks ago in freebsd-current (maybe also in freebsd-questions).
Expect support for use of portsnap to continue for some time beyond
completion of the transition.
