this evening i had a little bit of time to push my ports-database to the
next level of usability.


the updating of existing repositories is very easy now. i set a password
for this function to prevent that everybody klicks the button to see
what might happen.

i also found the bug why the unmaintained repositiory could not be
now the script checks the existance of every file before trying to open
it and outputs an error message if a file is missing.

last thing: in the first version i forgot the possibility that ports can
be removed from a repository. now the script detects which ports are not
in the repository anymore and removes it from the database.

improvement suggestions are wellcome.
