I am currently upgrading from Snow Leopard to El Capitan and have completed to OS X install. I now want to migrate my MacPorts to the new OS and, to this end, I have installed Xcode and am contemplating installing MacPorts. In the MacPorts Guide section 2.4 I read the following paragraph:

Uninstalling MacPorts can be a drastic step, and depending on the issue you are experiencing, you may not need to do so. If you are unsure, ask on the macports-users mailing list first.

I am not experiencing any issues and am unsure whether I need to uninstall MacPorts. Can someone tell me if I need to uninstall Macports?
