The port group code lives in the same GitHub project as the ports. See

https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/tree/b7dbaee30cd63f197eb8d1b0db9090a5a5c948f4/_resources/port1.0/group <https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/tree/b7dbaee30cd63f197eb8d1b0db9090a5a5c948f4/_resources/port1.0/group>

New port groups should just be added there.

I would also say submissions of new groups should proceed as PR request just like port updates/submissions.
