Expulsion of John Marino was a shocker to me, caught me by surprise.

Now my question is what is the status of synth?

Should I switch from portmaster to synth?

If synth is deprecated or dropped, after I switch from portmaster to synth, then I have to switch back, and this would be a monster mess of extra work.

Not to be inflammatory here, just want to know where I/we stand and don't want to go too far off course updating my ports.
