On the top of /usr/ports/Mk/bsd.port.mk:
# bsd.port.mk - 940820 Jordan K. Hubbard.
So my guess is Jordan Hubbard first created it.
For the most part I don't think one person maintains ports itself as
such. Those who -are- in charge of maintaining it are portmgr:
Satoshi Asami, Kris Kennaway, Maxim Sobolev, Steve Price, Will Andrews,
Akinori MUSHA, Mario Sergio Fujikawa Ferreira, Joe Marcus Clarke
The ports themselves also have a seperate maintainer who maintains
that specific port (I maintain one such port). Often times a port is
not really maintained by anyone, so it is labeled as maintained by
ports at . Anyone can volunteer patches for those ports.
