With version 2, ABS has moved to an rsync method for pulling the ABS tree, as part of the changes that needed to be made for our internal move from CVS to SVN as our source control mechanism. This means a few things: 1) cvsup/csup are no longer required, rsync is used instead 2) Configuration moved from /etc/abs/abs.conf to /etc/abs.conf - /etc/abs/* are no longer required Also, since category information (ie. base, devel, editors) is no longer stored in the repo, makeworld has been updated - check makeworld -h for more info.
