Greetings all,

I'd like to contribute to MacPorts.

I've gone through the ideas and Auto-detection of build dependencies seems interesting to me.

I have queries regarding the same:
- Is the project in reference to changing "port reclaim", more specifically change port reclaim to not delete build dependencies?
- Auto-Detecting the build dependencies would essentially mean replicating the behavior of "port deps" or "port info"?
- How should I go about contributing to the code?
