Yes. Please add notes to the PR if you test-build your patch,
for example using poudriere, and maybe for one or several of the
current FreeBSD releases like CURRENT, 11, 10.3 and 9.3, and for
several plattforms, like amd64 and i386, and maybe ARM 8-}, that would help
committers to decide that the patch is tested.

If you add a note that you run-tested the code and it does what
it's supposed to do, that's helpful, too.

If you note that portlint -AC was fine, too, this helps, too.

And if you add a URL to the changelog, this helps, as well.

I use this link to look at the open bugs queue for ports:


If this queue gets longer, it means committers are failing behind.

We had approx. 290 PRs around end of August, and we're now at 342,
this means the backlog is getting worse. There was eurobsdcon,
and most of us are waiting for 11.0-RELEASE, so that might
explain the backlog 8-} So a bit of patience is probably appropriate.

Btw, testbuilding right now...
