Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

cvsupd is the cvsup daemon.  cvsup is a system for upgrading and maintaining source trees.  This article shows how I installed cvsupd.   The original article is at Setting up a FreeBSD mirror site but I suggest you ignore that part.  Actually, I'm not sure why/how cvsupd stopped working.  I suspect user error.  So perhaps that original article will work.  I don't know.
the install
Well, seeing as I had all the port skeletons installed, I just had to do the following:
cd /usr/ports/net/cvsupd-bin
make
make install
Running it
As shown in the original article, Setting up a FreeBSD mirror site, to start cvsupd, issue the following command:
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/cvsupd.sh

To verify that cvsupd is running:

# ps -auwx | grep cvsup
cvsup 301 0.0 3.5 1436 476 ?? Ss 9:15AM 0:00.17 /usr/local/sbin/cvsupd
                                      -e -C 8 -l @daemon -s sup.client
root 308 0.0 3.3 1560 440 p3 R+ 9:15AM 0:00.03 grep cvsup (bash)
