Moving www/vimb to wip/vimb2 and updating www/vimb to 3.3.0 (was: Re: Renaming www/vimb to www/vimb2 and importing wip/vimb3 as www/vimb)

Hello Greg,
(Sorry for the long Subject: but hopefully it is a TLDR; of the
new proposal!)

Yes, that's compelling as well (and I would prefer that too!).

No they will not have a bad time, apart that the configuration probably
will need some adjustments.

Probably the most reasonable position is if webkit24-gtk (older
and EOL) build while webkit-gtk doesn't (latest stable and actively
supported). But given that webkit24-gtk is no longer supported, like
vimb2 (new proposal)...

Is it okay if we move www/vimb to pkgsrc-wip as wip/vimb2 and update
www/vimb to 3.3.0 version (wip/vimb3)?

Thank you!
