Ports tree setup for development

Just wondering how people have their ports tree set up for development?

I ask because I had cloned the macports-ports repo to:


then ran `sudo port selfupdate` and all the files then changed ownership to
root. D'oh! After chowning the entire ports tree back to my user, I then
figured I could use `port sync` to only update the ports tree and retain
ownership, which worked well :-)

My remaining qualm is that git interactions are quite slow, which is
probably just a function of the repo size, and therefore difficult to do
anything about.

Would be good to hear how others are setup and whether you have any tips.
