Well, then either there is an exeption or we should consider to change
the Porters handbook Chapter 10 Upgrading, which says:
The best way to send us the diff is by including it via send-pr(1)
(category ports). If you are volunteering to maintain the port, be
sure to put [maintainer update] at the beginning of your synopsis line
and set the ``Class'' of your PR to maintainer-update. Otherwise, the
``Class'' of your PR should be change-request.
