I have noticed this also Josh. I have some code that I've been working on regarding fetching ports which will also use git. If I can get it working in the next few days "hopefully" I was going to try to set up the fetch source function the same way which should fix what you are seeing. It's been a bit of a learning process though so I'm not opposed if someone else needs to take it over if I can get it done fast enough.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

The overhauled system manager is now finished up.
It will now use GIT to pull the ports/source based on the work that malco_2001 sent in.
