How to stay up-to-date with Nouveau?


I am happily using Nouveau from a while now and have always updated my
ports according to the following scheme:
  1. Update the system "as usual";
  2. Update and install drm from git;
  3. Update and install xf86-video-nouveau from git.

I have been doing this since I have patched my src tree (I continued to
update my system using subversion so the patches are still merged in

However, I can see ports update for xf86-video-nouveau so I am wondering
if I could just continue to use drm and xf86-video-nouveau from the
ports instead of the ones in git? I think that patches in the system are
still required, are they?

Thank you!
