I didn't complain about "bleeding edge" sofware which we anywhere don't have 
(Gimp, Xorg, LibreOffice and all dependencies for those applications and more 
and more which I don't use and I don't need) but I complain about freezing 
ports too early before new release came out and after that rebuilt 5000 ports 
for example just because png new version is coming out. Or am I wrong?
