Are these ports somehow related to the BSD ports collections?
If so, then they may be derived from work by James Housley a
long time ago.

If they are pre-4.8, then they are definitely out of date.
I don't know much about the ports collection in details
but it seems reasonable that they could be "templated"
and instantiated similar to how the RPM specs are
Then at least a good faith effort could be made to
keep them up to date even if they don't get tested
as often as the RPM specifications.
Does this make sense at all?
