At any given time, approximately 20 - 25% of all ports are unmaintained.
Not all unmaintained ports need updating, but some do. That is where
you folks come in.
I have summarised some details at the wiki about Adopting Ports,
In the last Maintainer Roundup, we passed off ports to those who
replied to the list with their request. This practise will not be
continued. It is important for maintainers to learn the process of
submitting a PR to update their port.
Now check out the portscout for unmaintained ports,
http://firstname.lastname@example.org, and see what you
you can do up adopt and update one of these unloved, uncared for
The challenge has been made, it is up to you folks to rise up to it!
