[FreeBSD-Ports-Announce] [HEADSUP] The ports tree is now stage only

Baptiste Daroussin-2
Hi all,

The ports tree is now fully staged (only 2% has been left unstaged, marked as
broken and will be removed from the ports tree if no PR to stage them are
pending in bugzilla).

I would like to thank every committer and maintainers for their work on staging!
It allowed us to convert more than 23k packages to support stage in only 11
months!

Staging is a very important state, it allows us to right now be able to run
quality testing scripts on the packages (which already allowed to fix tons of
hidden problems) and it allows use to be able to build packages as a regular
user!

It also opens the gates to new features that users have been requesting for many
years:
- flavors
- multiple packages

Expect those features to happen in the near future.

Best regards,
Bapt on behalf of portmgr
