Yes, there should definitely be at least a link back to www.macports.org from ports.macports.org. ML posts can be done too but are not blocking website changes. :) > https://github.com/macports/macports-webapp/issues/47 > > ports.php is simply part of the main page, so it's easy to keep > navigating to other parts of the site; we would need to add something > to the new app as well.
