removes obsolete erlang versions lang/erlang-runtime15..18 ( git diff --no-prefix upstream/master..HEAD)

see https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-erlang/2019-February/000569.html & https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-erlang/2019-January/000546.html for context.

Also, http://erlang.org/doc/system_principles/misc.html states that only the current release is officially supported.
Comment 1 Antoine Brodin freebsd_committer 2019-02-14 08:33:45 UTC
This breaks INDEX:

databases/riak depends on lang/erlang-runtime15

We don't do exp-runs for ports removal,  just make sure that INDEX builds successfully
Comment 2 Dave Cottlehuber freebsd_committer 2019-02-19 10:28:44 UTC
Seems databases/riak still requires R15. I've suggested to the maintainer to either update or deprecate the port - upstream is at 2.2.6 and soon 2.9 while our port is at 1.4. Now awaiting a +1 from olgeni & jrm to move forward on this.
Comment 3 jay 2019-05-28 18:28:54 UTC
The recent riak-2.9 release requires either lang/erlang-runtime16 or lang/erlang-runtime17.

From rebar.config:

* {require_otp_vsn, "R16|17"}

A goal for riak-3.0 is to bring it up to OTP20.
