Thank you for the explanation. I realise there are good reasons for the 
SBo website only tracking the latest stable - but with 14.2 approaching 
5 years old now, there are more and more pressing reasons to try and 
install something more recent than that. It is good that ponce has a 
repo which will work with -current. I wonder if there would be anyway 
this fact could be made more prominent in the docs or on the SBo website 
somewhere - it feels a bit like having to join the "underground" 
movement to find out about it :-)
