No, as far as I know there is currently only *one* server who hosts a publicly visible copy of the repository. The server is: svn.freebsd.org and you would have to pull changes from that server, using svnsync. > Beyond that, you emphasized that it can't get only a part of an > archive. I'm guessing you were referring to grabbing only ports, as > against both ports and src? There is no subversion repository for ports, doc or www. Only the 'src' repository has switched to Subversion so far. So if you want doc/, ports/ or www/ you will have to keep using CVsup to grab repository copies for them. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
