My favorite mailer alpine has no port maintainer at the moment. Ports 
that have no maintainer and/or staging are at risk of being deleted from 
the portstree, and alpine is a port that I would definitely miss.

So I was thinking of becoming a port maintainer. Although I'm using 
FreeBSD for 15 years now, I have no programming experience at all.

So my first question is if it is possible for someone like me to become a 
maintainer for a port like alpine, or should I learn programming in C 

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.  And littered with
sloppy analysis!
