This includes emails as well as PRs. Of course, it's best to formalize
requests as PRs.
With regard to p5-XML-LibXML, I had contacted the maintainer (skv@) on
September 4, 2003 about this port as it was breaking during the
4.9-RELEASE build. That is sufficiently long to constitute an AWOL
maintainer. If someone has a patch, and would like to maintain this
port, they are welcome to do so.
