To contact the maintainer directly you should post a bug on the following w=
ebsite:
https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/

If the summary of your bug starts with "category/portname: " (for example, =
www/firefox: ),
then the maintainer will automaticaly receive an e-mail with your bug descr=
iption.

If you want to contact the maintainer without the bugzilla intermediary, yo=
u
can find the e-mail address looking at the output of pkg info (for example,
"pkg info www/firefox").
