TeX Live 2016 was released on 5 June 2016.
May we also mark -2015 as stable?
I would appreciate the version bump. In particular, the version of biblatex-apa package is broken in texlive-2015, because it is incompatible with the supplied version of biblatex. I had to manually download biblatex-apa-6.8 which works.
Is there any help needed for the version bump?
I suggest we rename the package to texdead and leave it at 2015 forever.
What is the blocker that is preventing this to happen?

Probably manpower/lack of time.
But it would indeed be nice to have 2016 in the tree.
Could a donation somewhere entice the developers?
Perhaps the maintainer can inform us that there is no plan to update the package and or no work has been done so far? The update task is not a rocket science, but knowing that there might be an almost ready bump does not encourage to start working on this in a local overlay.
Can this be closed now that texlive 2016 is in portage?
Thank you very much!
