Thanks for mentioning ./tool/ports/list. I didn't think about that. The workflow you suggest will most likely meet our needs.

Just out of mere curiosity, there isn't yet (and in near future won't be) a way to create such a port list with additional version information? This way it's not necessary to reproduce the working directory of the offline computer on the online computer in order to download the correct versions of the ports.
