I'm only going to answer that part, the rest of the thread being, I feel,
mostly FUD.

Yes, let's say there are two kinds of maintainers, those who keep the bugs
they find in the port until there is a new release to an absolute minimum
so that people are not scared of the number of changes, and there are
those, like me, that would rather have a dozen updates between releases,
each addressing a bug when it arises.

The BIND ports were in such a miserable way, with kludges everywhere, when
I took over that it took me some time to get them right.
