Recently when the perl@ mailing list was created, there was discussion
about assigning all the perl ports to it.  I objected at that time,
saying that there was a canonical name for "unmaintained" and that
was "ports at".  I think the consensus was that only the
critical (for some definition of critical) PRs would be so assigned.

My own research shows me that PRs assigned to kde, gnome, emulation,
and phoenix, tend to rot.  The java folks are a little more focussed
and thus tend to be better.
