I figure you have some spare time to help maintain these issues?
As you might be aware we are in the process of having a release
cycle and we are investigating which ports need to be upgraded
to do this properly without breaking an entire release.

THAT takes a little including rebuilding ports.

Ah yes make my day and make it happen, just dont come back whining in case
it does not do what you would have expected or something. If you need the
thing urgently install it manually and be done with it.

Exactly; please go to the Windows team and install windows on your machine
to get more professional support, including paying for everything

You tend to forget that we are volunteers and cannot handle it all; if you
know better, please step up and work on it else stfu.
