Where did you get that information? Whoever told you that is mistaken.
A large number of commits have entered the ports tree since the
beginning of the year. Have a look at the ports CVS mailing list
archive since December 2009: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/cvs-ports/
The ports tree does go into a freeze or slush state around release
times, but that doesn't completely stop commits either, mostly sweeping
changes that affect a great number of ports or introduce some other
incompatibility. Here's some more information:
Hope that helps, and thank you for your new port,
