Packages: true --but not true of svn's sources for ports:*Q*/

svn has 2014 's, 2015 's, and 2016 's sources for each of the
quarters: Q1 , Q2 , Q3 , Q4 .

Things seem to be set up more for source based builds 
(or local package builds and distribution based on
such sources for such builds).

(Not that I'm doing anything where I depend on the
issues or distinctions. I just noted the quarterly
history that is available and where it happens to
exist --which may well be obvious to most folks
