I understand this, of course. It's just bad luck that no one picked up the PR
before the freeze. I often had my PRs committed within minutes of writing the
PR. This time no one took it within 4 days.
Well, it's my fault to rely on something that cannot be relied on.

When the ports page on bsdstats was still open it said that only between 10
and 20 people (I do not remember the exact figure) use my port, so it ain't
that bad.
