Hi, i have send last month the port maintainer also the latest files
To upgrade the port with latest patches.

However some months ago there was also problems
to get the latest patches for bash into the port system.
Many people did jump in here to get it done.

Digest 480 of 30-07-2012 says a lot
Including the ones a few versions older.

On the latest files I did send I did get no response at all
That's why I no longer will forward patches for bash.
But I agree that it is a important port and patches are not released for
But in the end its all upon the port maintainer to do it or not.
I really hope it not will take 6 months again to get the outdated port
