What does that give?

Approximately 15000 portsnap snapshots (i.e., /var/db/portsnap or
/usr/local/portsnap directories) are being kept updated on systems
which send HTTP requests to portsnap*.freebsd.org.  Of these, about
4300 are running FreeBSD 6.0, 4500 are running FreeBSD 6.1, 2400
are running FreeBSD 6-STABLE, 300 are running FreeBSD 5.5, and the
remaining 3500 are using copies of portsnap installed from the ports
tree (presumably on earlier FreeBSD releases, since the portsnap
port won't install if portsnap is already part of the FreeBSD base

BTW, is portsnap meant to replace cvsup, or ... ? Or are we still only getting "half the picture" if we look at portsnap only?

You are getting some fraction of the picture. We don't use portsnap (and cvsup we do use but not that often), for example.

We use cvsup here, daily, to update the ports tree ... and based on someone else's post (alex?), finding out that portsnap overwrites the ports tree, which I'm taking to mean it will remove anything I add to it, makes changing over for me a no-op :(
