If they are the maintainer, it is OK by definition.  Otherwise, approval
from either the maintainer or portmgr@ is needed.

However, a number of people are on vacation, and they have notified
other developers that is OK to fix their ports while they are away.
Within reason, of course. :-)

In any case, which specific ports are you worried about?
