Thanks for sharing the list of 3851 ports in nonstaged.txt.  It is a
little disconcerting that  759 maintainers have decided to either not
convert to staging or decided to walk away.

# cat notstaged.txt | cut -d: -f2 | sort | uniq | cut -d@ -f1 | uniq | wc -l

John alluded to a plan for ports, of which staging is a prerequisite, is
there a current plan available to be shared?  It might help some
maintainers to buy-in to the staging paradigm and continue their
valuable contribution to the FreeBSD project.  The prospect of freezing
my ports tree, at end of June, and cherry-picking ports isn't pleasant.
