You're right. It takes too long to commit the update with the
individual ports, since there are usually hundreds of files
updated in each upgrade, not to mention that doing them
individually loses atomicity. So perhaps what I'll do next time
is just keep the first line and point to a changelog on a website.
And perhaps follow up to the commit message with the contents of
I should also try to reduce the number of files needing changes
for each upgrade too, actually. Perhaps combine all the
distinfo's to x11/kde3/distinfo and centralize the version number
in bsd.kde.mk or x11/kde3/Makefile.kde. That would probably cut
down the number of files changed by at least half.
