They're mostly maintained by python at FreeBSD.org which is a group of
people (See towards the end of https://wiki.freebsd.org/Python).
Yes, ideally this mistake would have been caught before the port was
updated. It's a slightly tricky thing though -- test building would
have shown everything was fine. It's only when anyone tried to *run*
certbot that the problems become apparent, and no-one did that before
committing the upgrade. For routine updates patch-level updates like
this one, 99% of the time just doing build tests is sufficient. This
unluckily happened to be one of the 1%.
If anyone is interested in testing it, I've created a patch which can be
downloaded from https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=233909
