Yes, I agree with Ernst - from a committer's viewpoint, it is easier to
have all information about a new port in a single PR, as opposed to one
PR with the original shar file, plus several PRs of updates in diff
format. ;)

Include something like [NEW PORT] in the Synopsis field, and then in
Description area add something similar to:

Supercedes:	ports/59252

That way, a committer will know to close that old PR.

Better yet, you may want to check out my devel/porttools port
which will automate most of that for you. 8-)
