+    <p>Port managers and cluster administrators have completed the
+      restoration of binary package building in the last few weeks.
+      This has brought us back the continuous updates for the old-style
+      binary packages on the 8.x and 9.x -STABLE branches.  Note that,
+      as beneficial consequences, Release Candidate builds for the 8.4
+      release cycle can now include binary packages on the install
+      media, and the Project was able to add the missing binary packages
+      retroactively for 9.1-RELEASE on i386 and amd64 platforms.</p>
+    <p>Port managers are currently working on introducing new-style (as
+      known as <q>pkgng</q>) binary packages in the coming months,
