Sounds strange. Everybody have write permissions to pkgsrc CVS tree?
And yes, i'd like to contribute (and probably maintain) some packages
to pkgsrc repository. At least this one

But now, it will be good if my reports will be fixed, at least this one ;)

strange because pkgsrc is claimed as a portable packaging system
(excellent idea IMO). This is probably because pkgsrc's user base is
very limited.
