lets start by opening a PR for each port, offering to take maintainership.

(edit-pr.. I think the class is 'change-request')

once you are approved as maintainer, you would then ask a committer to 
set class for repocopy.

and, maybe you can just set class as repocopy in the initial pr.

include patches against the COPY in your PR
GNATS will auto assign it to portmgr, who will make the copy (which 
preserves the cvs history),
once copy is made, it will be re-assigned back to the pool, or a 
committer who will commit your changes.

(look for repocopy examples in porters handbook)
