--- Comment #7 from Sean Champ <lab+bsd@thinkum.space> ---
This patch set, in effect, has a transitive dependency on FreeBSD 13. This is
due to a dependency on FreeBSD 13 in the x11-wm/muffin[1] patch

After reviewing the changelogs for the linuxmint muffin sources, this
dependency may have been introduced immediately after the 5.2.1 release[2]. The
changeset where it appears to have been introduced in muffin was a git rebasing
changeset corresponding to some API updates in cinnamon[3]. The change in
cinnamon was previous to the cinnamon 5.4.0 release.

So, this effective dependency on FreeBSD 13 may be limited to the cinnamon 5
series of upstream source releases.

In one proposal for addressing this with compatibility for FreeBSD 12.3 and the
upcoming 12.4 release, it would be hypothetically possible to spin out a
cinnamon5 ports series.

This would be  independent to the ports drawing from Cinnamon 4.x upstream

For the subset of ports in cinnamon dependencies (e.g xapp) with upstream
sources released under a different version series, maybe those could be used
without a branch for the Cinnamon 5 release series.

This is a hypothetical proposal, in the interest of contribution for FreeBSD on
the desktop, with continued support for FreeBSD 12.x releases
