Yes, this is what I understood. Normally there is not much discussion
about issues in MacPort, so I hope they can live in this ML for now.

I have used the NS port for more than one year if I remember correctly.
During that time there was little response to any bug report in the NS
port so I moved on. Things might have changed given all these years so I
have little idea what it is like these days.

In the two years that I have been using MacPort, I have reported via
private emails to its author a dozen bugs, all of which were fixed
within a day or two with detailed explanation of what was going on. I
highly appreciate such a quality support and feel safer and happier
using MacPort.

Having said that, I encourage new comers to use NS port
whenever/wherever I can.
