I would actually believe the number of affected users should be between
very small and zero.

I personally never run portindex on the full port tree: I have a very
small development tree in which I keep symlinks only to the ports that I
am currently developing, and I run portindex on this tiny subset. For
the rest, I trust rsync. I'm wondering whether I got the hint from some
macports cookbook, but I think not.

Such a workflow should work for most maintainers, and should scale
fairly well also for very active developers.

Kind regards, Thibaut.
