To answer the first, I have generally emailed the maintainer in the
past. If a port is unmaintained, I don't feel bad about updating it
myself, but if it's got an active maintainer listed, I mail said
maintainer an update.
As for the second, I also fork an httpup version of it and then follow
the first bit. :)
