Hmm, either you didn't understand what I meant or I wasn't clear enough.
I wasn't, by any means, demanding that this package is updated
immediately. It was simply an honest question: Whether it can be updated
before 5.1 gets out. I'm very aware of the fact that, during a ports
freeze, portmgr@ are the ones to decide if a commit goes in or not. Even
if the port is not updated, I think a message should be added, something
like:

***************************************************
Warning: enabling mod_dav may pose a security risk.
***************************************************

And let the admin decide whether she is willing to use it. Marking the
port as FORBIDDEN is not a solution at all, IMHO.

Thanks, I'll have a look at it.

Yes, I do trust them :)
