I may have misunderstood all this, but I run a local read-only mirror of
the source-repository for my tinderbox (via the cvsup-mirror port).
Do I have to change that from csup to svn, too, then?

Given the fuzz made here about deprecating (or not) pkg_* recently, I
can hardly believe that this was "broken" "just so".

Is there a new port that does the same for svn?
