Technically until all the releases are out the door. The reason for this
is that portmgr wants to be able to slip the tag for the
6.1-RELEASE/5.5-RELEASE packages if the need for some critical security
updates should arise at the last minute.

I have however contacted portmgr again and asked if I can jump the gun
with KOffice, since there's obviously some public demand.

Yes ... the KOffice port and 60 KOffice i18n ports (and it builds on
FreeBSD 4, too).

I don't have the big diff against ports ready yet - if portmgr says I'll
have to wait for the releases, I'll make it available on monday.

GNATS is for bug reports, documentation changes, port upgrades and new
port submissions. It's not a public message board.
