 The situation with libstree is kind of a mess.  The pkgsrc package is
 currently at 0.4.0; the latest release is 0.4.2 (from 2006), and there
 is a prerelease version 0.4.3-pre2 (from March 2007).  There does not
 appear to have been any further development since then.
 The 0.4.2 release is missing the HTML documentation present in both
 0.4.0 and 0.4.3-pre2, and the 0.4.3-pre2 ChangeLog file does not
 actually list any post-0.4.2 changes.
 I'm reluctant to update to a prerelease version, especially given that
 it seems unlikely to be followed by an actual release, and with the
 author noting on the project home page that "Many of you have pointed
 out bugs in the prerelease".
 What is the underlying reason for the update request, and would an update
 to the 0.4.2 release satisfy that need?
 Andreas Gustafsson,
