It seems that squid 3.5 is becoming the latest recommended production
quality version. Squid 3.4.12 and 3.5.2 were just released today. What is
everyones thought (or the maintainers plan) on moving the www/squid port
from 3.4 to 3.5?

It looks like the www/squid33 port has been kept around past its ideal
expiration date because of an issue with ntlm_auth affecting squid 3.4.
This bug has been fixed in the latest 3.4 and 3.5 release.

So is the idea to now move the www/squid port to 3.5, or create yet another
squid port of www/squid35 because we want to keep 3.4 as the "stable"
version for a while. I am just wondering because I would like to move my
production environment from squid 3.4 to 3.5, and am happy to contribute
patches to the ports tree, but am not sure what the plans are.
