I've had an update for www/magento sent a few months back, which landed
in spam. Replied to the bugbuster address and never saw any follow up.
Work then took a lot of a time, so I didn't chase this down.

Please note however, that I'm working on the upgrade, which will
convert to stage in the process. As a precaution, I'll put a link up to
the patch, rather then add it to the mail as an attachment. It will be
rather big, cause of the conversion to a pkg-plist.

In short, hands off please, it's being worked on.
