This is known, automatic notifications already reached the mailing list
yesterday at 8:55 UTC
The notification actually contained an error and I already reacted to
that by adding the PORTSCOUT variable to the legacy ports.
I'm testing the new release and should be able to commit the update to
the tree later. It looks like a n easy update, but testing this ports
requires time. Time to compile it (and it's heavy dependencies) on
multiple OS version, time to run it to verify there are no big regressions.
This time the update looks easy with no need to modify patches or add
new ones, but this looks like an exception not the rule.
When someone (like me this time) is able to start working on the update
right away it's anyway impossible to get it in the tree in less than
24/48 hours in the best scenarios. Much more it the update proves
difficult due to incompatibilities or need to modify patches.
It could also happen for committers to be all busy or unavailable so a
week or two could also happen.
Anyway, as stated, I should be able to commit the update today.
