I also saw that some packages ATM have got more than one MAINTAINER, for
example x11/mlterm (for a complete(?) list:
grep "MAINTAINER=.*,.*" $PKGSRCDIR/*/*/Makefile ) and IMHO
pkgtools/pkglint (in this box I've got pkglint-4.85) doesn't work
properly with them:

 $ pkglint
 WARN: Makefile:8: "," is 
not a valid mail address.

Probably something like that can be a good idea (IMO):

 MAINTAINERS=   a_maintainer%blabla.bla@localhost 
 OWNERS=        a_owner%blabla.bla@localhost 

It's just an idea, BTW.

Ciao, Leonardo
