[FreeBSD-Ports-Announce] Reminder: Ports CVS EoL on February 28th 2013

Beat Gätzi-2
Hi,

As announced in September the ports tree will no longer be exported to
CVS after February 28th 2013. All users who still use CVS, CVSup or csup
to update the ports tree are encouraged to switch to portsnap(8) or for
users which need more control over their ports collection to use
Subversion directly [1].

A migration guide from CVSup/csup to portsnap is also available in the
FreeBSD handbook [2].

More information regarding the end of ports CVS can be found in the
initial announcement [3].

Beat, on behalf of portmgr@
