Port maintainers, please mind the commit guidelines

Some port maintainers don't format their commit messages as recommended by the guidelines.

Please make sure that you prepend a list of all ports affected by your portfile modifications to your commit messages like e.g. in these examples:

	svn ci -m "myport: version update" myport

	svn ci -m "myport1, myport2: version update" myport1 myport2

	svn ci -m "myport(|-devel): version update" myport myport-devel

That makes the timeline much more readable!
