I understand only main/ is backward supported?
But i really have to stand up for this one.
Reported bugs end up in new releases occasionally, which then end
in main by updating APKBUILD. If i look at the commit log i see
something back in July 2015, which surely was a pain. Can a port
be managed any cheaper than this one?
