That is the correct but I prefer to use portsnap for ports and keep cvsup just for core OS!

 Many people do it it two operations because they really are two
 different things.

        Another reason is to (theoretically) limit possible damage is
things Go Horribly Wrong and make the post-mortem easier.
        I have a cron job that updates the base OS, the docs (a
separate entity), and the ports every night at midnight.  Once it
connects, the update take less than five minutes.  (Except for rare
occasions.)  Aside from bugs introduced by my attempts to improve
the script, this has run without porblem for years.
