Actually not. My own POV is that we should follow the vendor release
cycle, and not the FreeBSD release cycle, for the contributed software.
I do not advocate immediate upgrade of the third-party software that
reached its EOL, but I think that we should do this without pushback
if maintainer consider the neccessity of upgrade.
