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.
