Regarding ports that are maintained, there is generally a 2 week timeout  
with PRs regarding port upgrades (which is noted in the handbook),  
assuming a patch is provided.  The most likely delay with your situation  
is that you did not support a patch to actually perform the update -  
simply the request.  Upgrading ports that has other maintainers is time  
consuming to begin with - even moreso when you do not provide a patch to  
aide in the process.

You CC'd the maintainer.  That is sufficient.
