It has no maintainer so it is fair game to take over maintainership and/or
contribure patches.  Use a trac ticket and attach the updates as a patch
to the portfile, and patches to the app (if any) as complete files. 
Mention you'd like to takeover as maintainer.  Ping the list if no one
notices it for awhile.
