Well, I think it's not a big deal that current version exists, if
you don't like it or you think it's not suitable for ports collection,
please explain it in technical details to maintainer. If maintainer
would like to have this port and it's not broken and he's also ready
to maintain it further, it's his business, not portmgr.

Right, that's why ask maintainer privately first, before pouring out
a negative emotional stuff on all our heads.

Not all development versions are stable enough, they exist in ports
collection though, because people need them for some reasons. If
those ports build fine, and are helpful for people, I don't see any
reason to remove them. So please remove portmgr from such kind of
discussions, and speak with maintainer at first.
