what is the strategy with the libressl port as opposed to libressl-devel?
Currently, libressl is 2.5.5 and libressl-devel is 2.6.2.

I don't think upstream even considers "devel" releases in any sense,
a release is a release. Is there anything else from the port's view
that makes one of them "stable" and the other one "devel",
or is it just a name for previous and latest?
