Ports with version numbers going backwards: databases/ruby-sqlrelay

** The following ports have a version number that sorts before a previous one **

 For many package tools to work correctly, it is of utmost importance that
 version numbers of a port form a monotonic increasing sequence over time.
 Refer to the FreeBSD Porter's Handbook, 'Package Naming Conventions' for
 more information. Tools that won't work include pkg_version, portupgrade
 and portaudit. A common error is an accidental deletion of PORTEPOCH.

- *databases/ruby-sqlrelay* <ports at FreeBSD.org>: ruby18-sqlrelay-0.34.3 < ruby18-sqlrelay-0.34.3_1

   | Drop MAINTAINERship as this port should be maintained along with
   | databases/sqlrelay.
   | Reset PORTREVISION. (Should have been done in the last update but this
   | port has been broken since then anyway)
