Comment (by mascguy):

 First off, I sincerely apologize for the negativity, and pessimistic tone.
 Ditto for any suggestion that our organization's approach isn't good, as I
 don't believe that whatsoever. The last thing I want to do is alienate any
 of of you folks, and/or contribute to negativity!

 MacPorts has been - and continues to be - an incredibly awesome resource
 for the community. And I fully support the approach we're taking, as it
 does benefit upstream projects: By moving forward, we help pay it forward,
 and assist them with identifying and tackling code issues.

 My only thought/suggestion - in the interest of balancing all of that,
 with the limited time of our maintainers - is this: If there's a way that
 we can gradually migrate to the latest Clang version - maybe by starting
 with ports that declare a need for the latest C++ standards (2017+ for
 example) - that might be something to consider.

 After that's been in play for at least a few weeks - or a month - then
 expand that to C++ 2014 and later. And so on.

 Is that a potential compromise that might be worth trying?
