My ASSP portfile I have now, instead of using xinstall, I just copy
the directory into place. I need a little guidance no the best way
to do this.
ASSP will end up in /opt/local/var/ASSP
If ASSP is not there, I just move the entire distro in. On first run
of ASSP, a few files and folders are made, the user is good to go.
How do I deal with updates to ASSP? The files that were made on first
run, as well as config files that have been edited over time, can not
I believe if I do this as a entire directory, I am going to mess up,
unless there is a merge or sync command I am not seeing.
Would it then be correct to simply install each file one at a time,
then they get registered, and the port upgrade can just touch those
files, leaving any user created files in the same area alone?
