https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=267250 --- Comment #7 from Sean Champ <firstname.lastname@example.org> --- 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 patch After reviewing the changelogs for the linuxmint muffin sources, this dependency may have been introduced immediately after the 5.2.1 release. The changeset where it appears to have been introduced in muffin was a git rebasing changeset corresponding to some API updates in cinnamon. 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 sources. 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  https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=267245#c2  https://github.com/linuxmint/muffin/commit/8599127fa99dc285426fd84c2f53ed0ae8d60d3c#diff-479648c468905ef813febbe5e6af7f9c13e2e2247d366d90ec095484f91ecb14  https://github.com/linuxmint/cinnamon/commit/d6253f1cb1a1e7bf1 -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
