So until git happened I was updating my applications
by updating ports,
then synth prepare-system,
then pkg upgrade -R synth
with a check for particular programs I might want to postpone.

When git happened I created a /usr/ports/pregit
from the old /usr/ports
and a /usr/ports/git for the new version.

But what is the command line to get new ports now?

In the meantime I've just been running off pkg update
which only handles the remote repository but I think I'm
now outdated on OS for that (will upgrade there too).

(There's a particular program that I want to get some old-version
stuff with done before I get the new version that the system would
force on me if I upgraded various other things...but I do need
to proceed).

install net/gitup and look up gitup in freebsd.org .

I have a /usr/local/bin/gitup but I'm not clear on just what
I have to enter to get the current ports tree and have
synth prepare-system apply it from where I have it.

IIRC, the FreeBSD handbook has detail of gitup.

Here is my

/usr/local/etc/gitup.conf
