Happy holidays to you. Being maintainer means we would like you to submit updates to your port when new versions are available (file a ticket, attach a patch, someone will review and commit it). And if users file tickets against your port, the tickets will be assigned to you; you should comment on these, attach patches if you can, someone will review and commit them.
