Usually going to


and selecting Summary from 'Add filter' can get you to port-related tickets
quickly since most of them have the port name in the summary (there's also a
port field but older tickets didn't have it and won't be found searching on
that).  There's also the 'Ticket Search' link on the left which goes to


and lets you search both port & summary, though I use the first mostly out
of habit.

Also being on the macports-tickets list (where every ticket change is sent)
help keep awareness up.

Finally, in the specific case of the ticket I mentioned earlier, that is one
I filed so I definitely knew of it...
