PORTSNAP.CONF(5)	  FreeBSD File Formats Manual	      PORTSNAP.CONF(5)

NAME
     portsnap.conf -- configuration file for portsnap(8)

DESCRIPTION
     The portsnap.conf file controls where portsnap(8) fetches ports tree
     snapshots from, which RSA key should be trusted to	sign the updates, and
     what directories should hold the compressed and live ports	trees.

     A line of the form
	   SERVERNAME=portsnap.example.com
     specifies the source from which snapshots should be fetched.  This	is
     equivalent	to the -s server option	to portsnap(8),	and will be ignored if
     the command-line option is	used.

     A line of the form
	   KEYPRINT=0123456789abc ... 456789abcdef
     (64 characters in total) specifies	the SHA-256 hash of the	OpenSSL	public
     key file belonging	to an RSA keypair which	is trusted to sign updates.
     This is equivalent	to the -k KEY option to	portsnap(8), and will be
     ignored if	the command-line option	is used.

     A line of the form
	   WORKDIR=/path/to/workdir
     specifies the directory in	which portsnap should maintain its compressed
     snapshot of the ports tree.  This is equivalent to	the -d workdir option
     to	portsnap(8), and will be ignored if the	command-line option is used.

     A line of the form
	   PORTSDIR=/path/to/portstree
     specifies the directory in	which portsnap will create the live ports tree
     from its compressed snapshot via the extract and update commands.	This
     is	equivalent to the -p portsdir option to	portsnap(8), and will be
     ignored if	the command-line option	is used.

     If	more than one line of any of the above forms is	included in
     portsnap.conf then	only the last one will take effect.

     Finally, a	line of	the form
	   REFUSE foo bar
     will instruct portsnap(8) to ignore parts of the ports tree with paths
     starting with foo or bar, which are interpreted as	extended regular
     expressions by egrep(1).  This will result	in those parts of the tree not
     being updated in the compressed snapshot when the fetch and cron commands
     are used and not being extracted when the extract command is used (unless
     a specific	path is	passed to portsnap(8)),	and if those parts of the
     ports tree	are present they will not be updated when the update command
     is	used.  Unlike the other	options, the parameters	in REFUSE lines	accu-
     mulate and	all such lines are considered.	Note that operating with an
     incomplete	ports tree is not supported and	may cause unexpected results.

     Any lines not of the above	forms will be ignored.
