We have a few servers production servers that are running FreeBSD. I have cron jobs set up so cvs-supfile is run every night at 3am. The file is executed to see if there are any updates to the source or ports trees. The strange thing is that once the file is run it checks the ports tree then deletes all the ports! The next time the file is executed the entire ports collection is downloaded then it is immediately deleted. I have no clue why this is happening.
The version of FreeBSD we are running is 4.11. Below is the part of the cvs-supfile that I edited.
*default delete use-rel-suffix
Does anyone know why this is happening and is there anything I can do to keep the ports tree up to date without the entire ports collection being deleted on a nightly basis?
