Could someone expand on this procedure? It's not the one I've been using
either, and I want to be certain I am using the correct (safe) one.
Given that I cvsup both ports, and the stable tree consecutivly, what
should I add to the above procedure to update ports at the same time?
My intent is to update all of the installed ports at this same point in
time. BTW of it matters, the only significant thing I am runing from ports
that supersedes the base software is perl, and X version 4. All of my
otehr isntalled ports are additions to teh base software, not replacements.
