I think that these conditions are vague. When should a testing port
become a community one and a community one become main?

How about splitting ports into categories, so gcc would be lang/gcc,
vim would be editors/vim and firefox would be www/firefox? Those that
aren't stable could land in wip, like in pkgsrc.
