After reading entirely through the ReadMe.rtf file it seemed pretty sloppy to me.
Trying to improve it a bit here.

Note to self: read through before you commit, read through before you commit,

\f1\b What is DarwinPorts?
\f0\b0 \
DarwinPorts is a software build, install, and packaging infrastructure for installing open source software. It is designed to meet the same functionality requirements as the FreeBSD ports architecture while maintaining extensibility for future enhancement.\

\f1\b System Requirements\
\f0\b0 This disk image is built for Mac OS X __XVERS__.x (Darwin __DVERS__.x) and requires valid TCL, curl and OpenSSL installations to function, all present by default on Mac OS X. Also required is a full Developer Tools installation (Xcode), not present on the default system.\

Also required is a full Developer Tools installation (Xcode), not present on the default system. Please refer to the http://developer.apple.com/tools/xcode/ site for installation instructions.\
\

\f1\b How to Use\
\f0\b0 You can simple double-click the "Port Authority" application installed in /Applications/DarwinPorts or available at the http://www.wordtech-software.com/dpgui.html site. Command-line users can also invoke the "port" command, which (like other DarwinPorts binaries) is in "/opt/local/bin." Your path will be automatically modified to include that, if needed, during the install; note that you may need to open a new shell first.\

Command-line users may also invoke the "port" command, which (like other DarwinPorts binaries) will live in "/opt/local/bin." If needed, your path will be automatically modified to include this location during the installation; note that you may need to open a new shell to notice the change.\

DISCLAIMER: The "Port Authority" application and user interface is not officially supported by the DarwinPorts project. We mention it solely for the convenience of users who may wish to try it.\
\

\f1\b What is Installed\
\f0\b0 The DarwinPorts infrastructure is installed in "/opt/local/var/db/dports/." In particular, the sources for the infrastructure and "Portfiles" are located in sources. These files are owned by root, and require "sudo" or equivalent to access.\
\f0\b0 The DarwinPorts infrastructure is installed in "/opt/local/var/db/dports". In particular, the sources for the infrastructure and "Portfiles" are located in the sources/ directory therein, and kept up to date through the "sync" and "selfupdate" targets of the "port" command. Please read the port(1) man page for more information.\

Ports consist of directory containing both a Portfile and associated files. Currently the only bundled files are patch files, and these are likely to be kept to a minimum.\

A Portfile consists of valid TCL, evaluated by a TCL interpreter instantiated by the DarwinPorts System. Portfiles use extremely straightforward key/value pair syntax, while allowing the author to use the full extent of TCL's functionality where necessary.\

Submissions should be uploaded to http://bugzilla.opendarwin.org as new bugs against the "dports" component of the DarwinPorts product.\
