There is some controversy about if this is a good idea or not. After a
short discussion on portmgr we decided that we really need more
maintainers, so we welcome all people to take up a port. People should
realize that being a maintainer has some responsibilities and sending an
update along with the maintainer patch is a good way of showing that
they know what they are getting into.

Aaah! So that's where all the load on my box is coming from :-)
You should change the url to portsmon.freebsd.org. Portsmon was moved
from firepipe some time ago and the url only works for people that
haven't updated their bookmarks yet and I can't say how long it's going
to stay. Whenever we move portsmon around again, the freebsd.org alias
will stay.
