I think that when somebody goes to shells/bash, they'll expect to be
installing the latest "stable" version of bash. I think that if somebody
wants specifically to install an older version of bash, they can specify
I think that "NAME == current release; NAMEx == devel or old version" is
definitely what people will be expecting with version numbers.
The libxml/libxml2 split is a slightly different story. First of all, a
number of apps for GNOME 2 were officially named NAME2; libxml2 was one
of those. However, here maintaining the separation between GNOME 1 and
GNOME 2 was highly important, and it made more sense to clearly
differentiate versions and let people specifically install the gnome2
desktop. kde3 is the same concept, as is INDEX-5.
That being said, the FreeBSD/GNOME team is well aware that we should be
rolling things into NAME, not NAME2 ports. We would like to throw stuff
back, but the havoc it will cause makes the manoeuvre of questionable
value. Perhaps we will wait until GNOME 3, and put that into x11/gnome,
and let x11/gnome2 de-orbit inplace.
