You should read the guide and wiki, as Ryan suggested.  This will help 
you learn how to locate, modify, and test portfiles.  Then you can 
upload patches and new portfiles to the tracker.

Regarding py26-traits, please see ticket #27016:


I put a patch up there yesterday for the latest traits and other 
enthought modules that are needed for Mayavi.

I have had a couple emails with Frank Schima (aka macsforever2000) about 
a Chaco port.  He got stuck with the dependency "enable".  I'm not sure 
where he is at with that since he didn't put something up on the tracker.
