It was decided that any implied recommendation for portupgrade and 
portmaster in FreeBSD documentation has to be removed.  The docs people 
are aware of the decision and are charged to implement it.  It's not 
"my" demand.  If valid PRs are in a moving queue, fine.  If valid PRs 
are being conveniently and intentionally forgotten, I would say that's 
not fine.

and mcl: I challenge you to identify *ANY* offputting language in PR 
214679.  You can't just imply that it exists when it doesn't.
