It's not forbidden, but committers are strongly encouraged to seek
review of anything that isn't a routine port update or modernization or
a trivial fix.  Of course, updates that involve modifying the ports
infrastructure will need approval by the appropriate maintainers
(usually portmgr) and updates that would potentially affect a large
number of ports should have an exp-run.
