5.5.38 fixes 15 bugs so i think it was regular release.
What i propose is to extend this expiration date to two or three months. 
It is wildly used port and will remains in quaterly branch too. I don't 
think we need to maintain it longer as was with 5.3.

While I am here, the pkg message have some weird escaping of spaces:

This port is deprecated; you may wish to reconsider installing it:

EOL\ upstream\ since\ 10\ Jul\ 2016.

It is scheduled to be removed on or after 2016-08-20.

Is it intended or is it a bug in ports / pkg?
