I found sources.conf, but would have found it useful if it indicated
that I could have both a file:// AND rsync:// line. It has no indication
that I can have more than one uncommented line. That would be a nice
addition to the default sources.conf file, also with a line that says
what overrides what (does the first line override the second or vice

Thank you for the pointer to man ports.conf.
