It is the maintainer's responsibility to update the port.  If the
existing maintainer has vanished, you can take over maintainership by
submitting a PR that updates the port and changes the MAINTAINER line.
If the ports team are unable to contact the maintainer after a suitable
period then your PR will be committed and you will become the maintainer.
