Standardizing "Foobared by:" entries would improve the quality of
our ports ?  I don't want to comment it, because it's already
getting into bikeshed.

? I know a lot of people who just want to track down ports changes
in cvs-ports@, they don't want to contribute and they don't want to

I didn't tell it's a bad idea to send your comments, everybody's
welcome to do it.  But this kind of comments, like in this thread are
