Comment (by artkiver):

 I am not too familiar with the Livecheck code.

 However, that referenced GitHub ticket seems to be checking a releases
 page, whereas the ChangeLog (e.g. https://github.com/libressl-
 portable/portable/blob/master/ChangeLog) is probably a better resource as
 it more definitively seems to indicate which releases are Development (and
 thus should presumably best be associated with libressl-devel) and which
 are Stable (and thus should are probably best associated with the libressl

 However, even the ChangeLog has releases marked as: "Reliability fix" or
 "Security release".

 In such instances, it seems to me that those should still be good for the
 main libressl Portfile updates, but I am less sure if we should have
 libressl-devel track them?

 Regardless, thank you for bringing this to our attention, I hadn't been
 away of that libressl-portable issue previously and it appears as if that
 is still open and may be able to benefit from some additional commentary
 given it's been (checks date) more than five years since it was opened!
