"Featured ports of the month"

Here's an idea I just had (while pondering whether the x2x port is the
most useful X tool ever):

The ports collection is so large thesedays that it can be hard to find
something unless you already have some idea about what you're looking
for.  However those of us who have been using FreeBSD for a while tend
to have picked up a collection of ports that are now essential for our
day-to-day FreeBSD use.

It would be a nice project to publicize these a bit.  For example, we
could ask users to submit a write-up of ports that they find
remarkable or useful, explaining briefly what the port does and why
it's cool or useful to them.  Once a month or so a selection of these
could be posted on the website.

This project would need one or more coordinators, to solicit
submissions from users as needed, select the items for publication and
update the webpages.

Is anyone interested in taking this on?
