True.  It helps to send a reminder (preferably an URL pointing to the 
PR) every once in a while.

For themselves, of course.  You can create and use a port yourself even 
if it hasn't been committed to the FreeBSD ports collection.

It would be nice if new port submissions were committed more quickly, 
or at least would receive a note that the submission has been seen by a 
human and is under review, but things take as long as they take.
