Might be one of those things worth posting on one of the recent FreeBSD social network pages (like FreeBSD and/or portmgmt on Facebook or G+).

Of course, adding it to the email templates returned by gnats when creating a PR (like the usual: you can find the PR under this URL ***note: due to these reasons the Db is not updating, your pr has been created an will show up as soon as the issue has been resolved **) would be great, but maybe that wild be a little bit over the top.
