4bb5018f 73. Submit a fix to FreeBSD ports or dports, depending on what the fix is. Ask on the lists or in the IRC channel if you don't know the appropriate place. dports issues are reported to [the dports issue tracker](https://github.com/jrmarino/DPorts/issues) and ports issues go to [FreeBSD's send-pr](http://www.freebsd.org/send-pr.html).
