Yeah, rules, policies and consistency are the things, which makes things
keep going frictionless.

There are no non-committers reading ports-committers. The
ports-committers list is a private list for those ones, who are in
CVSROOT/access for the ports repo. Similarly doc-committers and
src-committers serve in the same way but for the doc and src repos.
I agree that all of us should learn from each other, thus the comments
are useful and valuable. Even if one is not interested in the reaction
for one's commit, one is responsible for the quality of one's work. It
is not a rude criticism, just a helpful hand to make things better here,
thus it should be interpreted in this way.
