Re: pkgsrc-2014Q4 binary packages for illumos now available

Not to take away from what Joyent is proposing to do -- LTS support
beyond a quarter is a ton of work -- but pkgsrc stable branches do
receive security fixes during the quarter.  If you find a package with a
problem (in pkg-vulnerabilities or not) and can figure out how to fix
it, please send that to pkgsrc-users.   Often doing the security patches
is a fair bit of work to figure out, depending on how the upstream
behaves.  If they have clear advisories and per-SA patches, then it's
fairly easy.  If you have to figure it all out, it can be pretty hard
(and then not happen).
