:know who maintains it?
we're at 5.004.04. The latest stable release is 5.005.03. That's not
that far behind. There was some other interest in upgrading it a few
months back (see archive I guess).
I suppose it's just a matter of packaging it and testing the other 89
packages which depend on it. However it will mean the everyone will
have to remake/reinstall all of those (up to 89) packages which rely
on it unless better logic on alternative dependencies can be done in
bsd.own.mk - maybe RE type like:
Perhaps that was discussed previously?
(Oh, and to address your question: sorry, don't know myself. No-one?)
