migration instructions

Hello all,

I have just updated to Yosemite and used the migration instructions at

I want to point out two issues:

1. Running "sudo port clean all" takes a huge amount of time. Apparently
many hours for me; I didn't have the patience to let it finish. Instead we
should clean just the ports that have incomplete builds (probably just a
few in most cases) which can be found by looking at
/opt/local/var/macports/builds and /optlocal/var/macports/logs I think,
saving a lot of time.

2. The list of ports generated in myports.txt and requested.txt will
include ports that are deactivated, including one line for each version of
a port, whether active or not. One line total regardless of number of
versions would be sufficient. Re-installing deactivated ports should
probably not be done by default since that is not returning you to the
original state and there was probably a reason (such as conflicts) why the
ports were deactivated.
