I don't know what you mean by "dead-pooling".

Lots of people use and contribute to MacPorts. If it meets some need of yours, then that is great. If you can help the community in some way, that is great as well.

If you need something that the community doesn't currently provide - and don't want to contribute it yourself - you can always try to find someone who you can pay to create the thing you want (or you can try to find some other system that does what you need). There are lots of things the community can do better (and we're glad that you are interested in helping things get better). If your expectations aren't being met, though, you probably need to adjust your expectations.
