The maintainer resigned, but updated to 6.0 because there were no distfiles,
and the code seemed to be gone for 5.3 is now on GitHub:


I don't know whether 6.0 is quintessential, but from a pure license perspective
it seems odd that everyone now has to use a proprietary license with no options
given even though we still have the original 5.3 *and* a fork which could very
well gain traction of a port was added as an alternative.

Just for the record, I know this takes work.  Not asking for it to be done,
simply wondering why this happened the way it did.
