 Understanding CVSup

OS News tells us about CVSup.

"Cvsup is a utility that reads a conf file, known as a 'sup-file' that tells it what server to use, and what to download. In essencewhat it does is it compares your local copy of the ports tree to the copy of the ports tree on the cvsup server. It then downloads everything in the ports tree that is newer than what is on your machine. The easiest way of installing cvsup is with the pkg_add command. All you have to do is login in as root, and type "pkg_add -r cvsup" and it will automatically download the cvsup package from a FreeBSD server and install it."
