    v119 v120  
    7575 Contains the binary archives of each installed port. Could be removed with `port clean --archive <port> <version>+<variant>`. These files are helpful for uninstalling and later reinstalling the exact same ports (eg. for testing something). Only unpacking the archive is needed and no build will be performed. If these archives are never needed they can be disabled in `${prefix}/etc/macports/macports.conf` with the `portarchivemode` option.
    7676
    77 `receipts`
     77`registry` and the older `receipts`
    7878 Contains detailed information about each installed port, e.g. which files belong to the port with corresponding checksums.
