Back last time I was last active,Satoshi Asami was the "Portsmeister".  I
dunno if that term is used anymore, but I need to find out if one person is in
charge of ports, or if it's a group of folks, and whichever it is, what their
name(s) are?

In case you're curious (nosy, aren't you?) I need to ask questions about the
official attitude with regards to the install hierarchy to be followed for
Linux applications.  I need more than just opinions, else I'd just ask here,
but I need to know, officially, what it is.  IF I can get it nailed down, and
if it ends up the way I would like it, I will go ahead and invest all the time
it takes, to fix every port I see that I think is broken, but I won't start
doing this until I get official word on RIGHT WAY.

Oh, BTW, I don't intend sneaking anything in, but I am not going to do the
work unless I find out if the work (if it does like I ask) would be accepted.

Darn, I can see 6 different ways to misinterpret that.  Ah, heck, it'll be
easier to reply to all the accusations, than try to explain it all up front.
