Maybe this is a translation problem, but when someone says, "My
understanding is ..." that's exactly how it should be read. I'm not
attempting to act as a spokesman for anything, nor did I claim to be,
and I don't think anyone (including Martin) is going to mistake me for
a member of portmgr.

If you want to prove me wrong, get some packages up there, no one will
be happier than me, since I've been looking for them for several
months now. :)
