Thank you for the report Peter

Assign committer of ports r502845

PORTEPOCH needs to be incremented as the version goes backward after this revision:

# pkg version -t 2020.0.0.a1 20141224
# <
Comment 2 Chris Rees freebsd_committer 2019-06-01 07:43:25 UTC
Yeah, no way around this one :(
Comment 3 Cy Schubert freebsd_committer 2019-06-01 14:51:26 UTC
Our choices are PORTEPOCH and 20200000.a1. I'm reluctant to bump PORTEPOCH if there's another way.

  Fix version going backward due to update to 2020.0.0.a1 (pointy hat to
  yours truly).

  The maintainer no longer wants to maintain ksh93 as his desire is to
  maintain a backlevel port of ksh93 in order to build and support a
  shared library for use by legacy applications, which is inconsistent
  with the direction of the att/ast team on github. I will maintain the
