When users who haven't submitted many ports before begin submitting ports, there are often several changes that need to be made to conform to our guidelines and use our available features most effectively. So it helps if you can submit just a single port first, listen to our feedback on it, make corrections, and get it into MacPorts. Then you can use that knowledge to submit a second port that hopefully doesn't need as many changes, and so on. Once you find that your port submissions are being accepted without any changes, then you can make tickets for multiple new ports.
