It's unsupported officially, but unstable is still available.
The porters could do their own release if they wished.
It would be interesting to hear how NetBSD/OpenBSD handles this
situation, as they have a lot of ports. (Of course they have far fewer
packages than we do so their problem is on a much smaller scale.)
Do they release new versions on all ports at once?
