is there a list somewhere of the recommended actions for the care and 
feeding of MacPorts?

My schedule is on Sunday I run "port -u uninstall" and the following 
Monday "port selfupdate" and "port upgrade outdated" whilst answering the 
questions; that way I get a week before the outdated ports are removed 
after the updated ones have been installed.

Is there anything else that I ought to be doing?
