Hello all

www/moinmoin marked BROKEN as "Uses unregistered uid/gid".
Its maintainer is currently ports at Now I'm
going to fix it but I'm not sure how to register uid/gid
for ports.

Porter's Handbook, 16.12 UIDs said:

   If your port must use the same user/group ID number
   when it is installed as a binary package as when it
   was compiled, then you must choose a free UID from
   50 to 999 and register it below.

Currently the port uses moinmoin(192)/moinmoin(192) and
they are not registerd to Porter's Handbook.
Is it the right way to send PR to add the uid/gid to
Porter's Handbook?
