Creating the new repo base directories

This article was originally written in September 2012, but never published. I’m publishing it today, much later than expected. I started looking at how to create these new directories as mentioned yesterday. This starts the process: $ psql freshports.org psql (9.0.8, server 9.0.9) Type “help” for help. freshports.org=# select Element_Add(‘/base/head’, ‘D’); element_add ————- 453742 (1

After this process was completed, I started noticing these errors: Use of uninitialized value $newOutput in string eq at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.12/XML/Writer.pm line 473, line 109.
