Maybe we can get help from our friends at Apple to get a corporate-style Developer account set up for MacPorts. Since we're not an official organization and have no papers, etc, I have a feeling we'd have a hard-time getting through their qualification process otherwise, but an individual account doesn't seem to really fit the bill either.

(Jordan or Ernie: can either of you be of help with this?)
