I have a question that who is responsible for (un)marking a port.

Marking a port as broken is portmgr's job.
Unmarking their port is maintainer's job even if mismarked. Is this 

portmgr marked net-im/rubygem-termtter BROKEN. I asked portmgr to 
unmark it
because the port actually works with ruby19. The port is marked as 
more than a year even if it is not actually broken.But portmgr told me 
contact respective maintainer.

I asked the maintainer in private e-mail but no answer for almost a 
I finally PR'd the issue and it is time to maintainer-timeout.

Please do something for the PR.
