I'd vote to have Chris H be the maintainer of this port.
Why knock the guy if he wants to invest his time and
energy into doing something to help the project?
Does it cause anyone pain to see someone working on
maintaining the project? Why would someone say no you cannot maintain this
especially when no one else is doing the work?

The only best way I've ever seen to find a really good developer is
find someone with dedication and willingness to take on hard challenges and
stick to it.
Chris seems like that type of person,
who would deny the man a chance to donate his time to the FreeBSD project?

Who would stand up and say, no Chris you can't maintain the port and why?
