Nuno,

Thank you for your concern.
Let me clarify. 
Maybe here we have an example of a bigger problem.
I do not have a goal to collect unattended ports.
I am just concerned about updating dependencies for my main port 
security/p5-openxpki.
It has many hundreds of dependencies 
(if you count test_dependecies, there are around a thousand of them).
And often it is essential that these dependencies be up to date --
for correct work of the named port.
Some maintainers of these dependencies have been not seen 
in the FreeBSD project for 10-15 years.
Often when I try to update a such, I takes months.
With time patches turn obsolete, I have to recreate them.
IMHO this practice is strange and even humiliating.
And maybe it is worth reconsidering.

Regards, Sergei
