I fear these changes are largely incorrect. ui_msg is a command, while notes is a variable (much like description and long_description). So you can't simply replace occurrences of ui_msg with notes and have things work properly. The idea is that notes is used for additional information the port may want to inform the user about after installation, and that the user can later type "port notes portname" to see them again if he's forgotten. Since I don't believe most of your changes meet that goal, I think you should probably revert most or all of this revision.
