I want to do keep the same base (FreeBSD stable) over multiple ports update
so when I install a new server after having synch my mirror I'm sure it gets
the same base (src-all) as the servers that were installed before the update
of the mirror. Regarding the ports tree, I want to be able to update it
quite often (first on the mirror, then on the hosts) depending on the
security fixes available.

One step ahead for me is to have a mirror providing only a frozen src-all
tree and another one providing up to date src-all and ports trees so I can
test the base before going on production.

I think this may work if I use two cvsup files (one for the src-all and the
other one for the ports) using a different date inside.

Thank you!
