Have a look at
There have been 8 updates of this piece of software in that time.

You state "the version distributed online may not significantly
differ from the original author's latest stable release (resp.
latest release on the branch) within a reasonable delay (normally
28 days)."

You don't say "Not more than 28 days", you suggest 28 days as a
reasonable delay for you.

Due to the ports freeze there have been no normal software updates
for about month in the FreeBSD ports tree. That is a normal delay
in the lifecycle of the FreeBSD software. Not everybody is agreeing
on it, but it is considered a normal delay.

To quote a friend:

    cvs rm -rf <blah>; cvs commit -m "Your license sucks.  Your
    code sucks.  You suck.  Happy Christmas."

I hope that is not what you were after...
