OK, information overload.  The package system is strait forward but ports
The idea behinds ports is good and it works well.  But as a new comer, when I look at the section on ports in the FreeBSD Handbook, information overload.   For every action/command it’s staring at a multiple choice test sheet.  cvsup, portsnap, portmanager,  portupgrade… and I’m sure there are more.    I’ve gone through the ports section of the handbook a couple of times and I’m still not clear what tool is used when.   I’m sure some tools only maintain the tree while other only work on the applications within, but it’s not real clear.   Cheetsheet anyone?
