Seems like both have mailing lists.
On http://darwinports.com/ though, maillists link seems broken

Then any repo will do for now.

I.e. being more upstream than repos. Now I understand, that seems
reasonable. Sorry, I didn't get the idea completely the first time.
Then I see even less problems - for each game we'll have repo
directory and a wiki page. Files layout may also be discussed -
will patch per file or all-in-one patch be better?
I also see an inconvenience in handling patches to patches in the
repo. Is importing whole upstream source a possibility (i.e. keeping
2 branches, one with vanilla source, one patched, and getting a
full patch with one command)? Actually only relevant files may be
imported (I.e. source and build scripts, but not docs and data).

Commit messages (with diffs included) from the repo may be mailed
to the list, so every commit is visible to others and can be easily
looked through. But it may spam a list pretty much.

Will do, actually I'm the one who made amd64 fixes for FreeBSD port
