In the Porter's Handbook documentation it advises that review/acceptance
of new ports can take anywhere from a few days to two months. It may
seem like a long time, but the Port people do have a lot of these
requests to go through. We should probably just sit tight and wait. I'm
sure they'll get through them all sooner or later.
