Oops, forgot to answer :)

Not really. They will stop when pkg-fallout stops building those ports,
which will be when the next quarterly is branched, but the fix to head
needs to be merged to the quarterly branch in the meantime.

A new one is cut (created) every quarter. The branch is updated when
people merge to it. The next one will be cut (created) in January 2016
(2016Q1). The previous one will remain in it's branch, but pkg-fallout
will stop using it in favour of the latest.
