That would be true for PR about the bug in FreeBSD itself, like kernel
or userland. It would be true for documentation. It would be true for
But for third-party software in ports, we simply can't track every bug
in vendor code here. The problem, unless it's specific to FreeBSD
_port_, must be addressed directly with the upstream vendor.
I'm sorry it hurt your feelings, I kinda expected it would. But this PR
was basically stuck, with no one commenting on it in two months.
I'm not claiming your problem is non-existant or non-important. If there
ever is a new development here, I'll be happy to re-open and handle the
PR. You can still send follow-ups on it, they will reach me.
