At present, FreshPorts deletes all VuXML information each time a
commit to ~/ports/security/vuxml/vuln.xml occurs. To reduce database
churn, I'm now looking at optimizing this process.
I expect the answer to my question to be yes, but do not want to rely
upon only my expectation. Do you respect the date_modified field?
I ask for reasons of keeping things simple. FreshPorts inserts each
vuln into a table. Is it sufficient for FreshPorts to compare the
last_modified field as supplied in vuln.xml to determine whether or
not it should update its information?
