Hi all,

Reading the mails on this list, I discovered the Shell mode option (sudo port without argument) which would allow in principle to launch several commands without repeating sudo port each time (and typing the passwd). But once in that mode, I typed selfupdate and was exited from the the mode after completion! Could not run upgrade outdated in the wake… In that case, what’s the use of such a shell mode ?
