sergei@'s commit bit was taken into safekeeping years ago and porttool's
project in SourceForge  has not seen any CVS commit for a long time
Meanwhile, we've been patching ports-mgmt/porttools to keep up with our
infrastructure changes and whatnot.
I was thinking of integrating those fixes upstream and continuing the
development somewhere else. skreuzer@ seems to have a fork on GitHub 
with no previous history and some commits on top.
I, for one, ran devel/cvs2svn on the existing CVS history and converted
it to git. The result looks OK and can be see in .
I'm not terribly interested in becoming porttools' upstream myself, but
if others fail to jump aboard that could end up happening.
