Ports and Packages for Supported Releases

Portmgr published a new page on their website which describes the
current support and EoL policies for the ports tree and released
packages. The main take-home messages are:
- Support of FreeBSD releases by ports and the ports infrastructure
matches the policies set out by the FreeBSD Security Officer.
- Package builds will use the oldest supported minor release within each
major branch to ensure ABI and KBI backwards compatability within each
major branch, and support all minor versions of each major branch,
including -RELEASE and -STABLE.
See the full policy on the portmgr webpage:
On behalf of portmgr,

Prediction is very difficult
especially about the future erwin at FreeBSD.org
