Dear users,

 From now on we are going to follow FreeBSD Ports quarterlies. That  
means that we should be able to provide faster fixes for CVEs and  
critical issues by doing incremental builds whenever possible.

This new binary package set is following 2021Q2 at May, 29th 2021.

As usual, you can use the "Bullet-proof (conflict-proof) upgrade  
technique" as described here:

     pkg: lua script failed
     No active remote repositories configured.

   It's a known bug, simply copy the sample mirror config file over:

DPorts yourself, please make sure you have a sh(1) version with  
'pipefail' supported.

   You can find out with:

      # sh -c 'set -o pipefail'

   Update your sh(1) by running as root:

      # cd /usr/src/bin/sh && make all install clean

   That's the quick way, the recommended way is updating your  
installation as specified in build(7) manpage.

5.10) were deleted a while ago. Updating your installation is
