questions for those who used it.

is it advisable to do src-all, or should i only do ports-all

Depends on whether you want to update the OS as well as the 3rd party software ("ports").

also is this configuration decent, in your opinion

*default tag=.
*default base=/usr/local/etc/cvsup
*default prefix=/usr
*default release=cvs delete use-rel-suffix compress
ports-all tag=.
#src-all (pending feedback)

Hmm, never used seperate tags in the same SUPfile, but I guess that cvsup is smart enough to do that, considering what it does do.

For a discussion of the release tags, see the "Cutting
Edge" chapter in the FreeBSD handbook[1].

Please do note that you most likely *want* to
use "tag=." for ports, but *not for source*.  You
probably want the latest releases of ports, but
it's not nearly so likely you want to be running
HEAD/CURRENT on your system....

[1]For 4-STABLE, for example, your cvsup app should
be looking for src files tagged "RELENG_4".
