Is there any stable release of macports or and how comes that buggy ports make it into the ports tree all the time? Doesn't anyone ever test his creations before publishing them?

An update was committed last evening (r146463) which seemed to work on initial testing but now is failing on El Capitan
only AFAICT.  Builds OK on Yosemite and Mavericks according to the buildbots.  We (the port maintainers) are working on
the issue and hope to have it fixed shortly.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.
