Critical bug fixes will be received for the next two years.
Files have been renamed to allow concurrent install with normal blender port

How about calling it graphics/blender-lts? (Set PKGNAMESUFFIX=-lts) And we can rename it to graphics/blender-lts28 when we want to add more lts versions.

I went with the uppercase following how blender promotes it on their site. Among ports keeping it all lower case is more common. Not real fussed either way on case.

I would rather keep the version from the start rather than changing it next year, we know there will be two LTS versions by mid next year. Trailing versions is common in other multi-version ports, like python, llvm, gcc

Not sure about adding the "-", it is used to separate flavours in pkg names, for port names and version additions I see it would be more common to add the version without a separator.

Let's please follow ports naming conventions and name it blender-lts to get this moving. Also it needs an update to 2.83.12.
