I would have thought as you are listed as the maintainer for two of the
affected ports you might have some reason for caring!
I had the crazy idea that all the maintainers on the hook might be able to
collaborate to deal with a common interest.
Maintainers on the hook as listed in the relevant Makefiles are:
ptlib -- lihong at ieee.org
ptlib26 -- melifaro at ipfw.ru
pwlib -- steve at energistic.com
openh323 -- steve at energistic.com
opal mi at aldan.algebra.com
asterisk sobomax at FreeBSD.org
Seriously this issue needs a solution.

Why scroll?? - Be flexible like your computer.
The modern method is to use an appropriate control key combination. Try Ctrl
End -- on freebsd 7.2 p3 it is the default way to get your cursor to the last
line of a reply with no fuss.
If you want to be super efficient a simple script will automatically launch
your reply with your cursor at the bottom! You can then post knowing people
will be able to read the discussion in a logical sequence. People read
discussions downwards not upwards !
