2.4.2 is possible but I'm not sure so I just left as IGNORE. port will be marked as IGNORE soon.
I'll update to 3.0.0beta2, port, and
then I'll mark as IGNORE the 3-RC. port has been marked as IGNORE, because
development has been moved to 3-devel.
and port is active.

So now, we have six ports, three are marked as IGNORE.

Yes, I ususally mark them as IGNORE if release branch is active.
