Keep the thanks for previous maintainers. It seems like I've contributed
only confusion.

In such cases there are usually two ports, e.g.

  net-p2p/amule (latest release)
  net-p2p/amule-devel (svn snapshot)

Now, if you're willing to maintain non-devel port I can write you a diff
and request my pending repocopy in ports/150985 to include amule-devel.
