Very true :-). However, if that's _really_ a problem for a maintainer (for
example because of job-induced periods of ENOTIMEFORFREEBSD), MAINTAINER
should be (re)set to ports at freebsd.org - it doesn't stop anybody from caring
about a port and regularly submitting updates, but it will stop the "New
version iz out, can u update plz, thx!!!111!!" spam.
