Sorry if my information was incorrect.

Those are committed now, thanks for jumping on this. :)

Sorry if my previous messages weren't clear. On May 12th I sent out the
following with the link to my proposed libassuan update:

I also discussed the fact that gnupg 2.0.15 was a simple update, but I
did not provide a patch for that.

In any case I'm glad that we're making progress on this transition. As
of now there are no broken ports related to the libassuan update. When
the optional dependencies in kdepim and opensc are removed I'll remove
the libassuan-1 port.
