Thanks for this update, I just want to remind something to everyone, because it
happened a lot recently.

Before breaking any ABI (SHLIB num bumped here in this case) all committers
should first talk to portmgr sync with them and then commit (and send a heasup
to portmgr saying the commit has been done)

Why so? just because we are trying to provide packages for head, that means that
before the commit we need to know it will happen and we have time available to
upgrade the build jail for head, then once we know we would be able handle the
upgrade of the jail in a good timeframe, then the heads up mail allows us to
know that the upgrade should actually be done (svn up will get the modification)

So next rebuild of packages will be done from scratch instead of incremental.

We are putting a lot of effort in trying to get packages working for head, this
small 2 mails will save us a lot of time, and a lot of stress.


I think we should really mark this has a policy in the committer handbook.
