I don't think this is appropriate. We are all volunteers here. Ryan and
others are investing a lot of their spare time to work for MacPorts. We
all have different motivations for our contributions and run the OS in
different environments. This isn't ignorance, it just meant as this
problem occurred we needed more information to solve it.
Even the Apple User Management Manual  doesn't tell us that mobile
users are using UIDs > 1000 and that this range is reserved for this
use. That's what we found out with the help from the community. MacPorts
can be only as good as the contributions to it.
