    Yes, and I didn't mean to imply anything except that dealing with
    portmgr@ is slow business.
    As I said, my box has cooling problems, e. g. it couldn't finish two
    consecutive builds of mod_php4 yesterday. Plus, testing can't prove
    absence of bugs, and I of course tested all changes, but missed some
    things, like the fact that there are more RE metacharacters than
    just the dot. That's what public testing is good for, right? :)

    BTW any progress with ports/40699? Average response time from
    portmgr@ 7 months, and it's been suspended ("the patch doesn't apply
    anymore"; no wonder two years after it's been submitted :) for more
    than month despite three new versions of the patch?

If you cc me or remove the list(s) completely I'll most likely ignore
your message.    see http://www.eyrie.org./~eagle/faqs/questions.html
