the biggest problem with this (as I pointed out in the earlier story) is the requirement that a port must be 10% of download from the mirrors
as someone else pointed out this would eliminate all ports except i386 according to the current measurements, I think they said the PPC was the next highest at 3%
allowing some ports to release later is not a bad idea, but saying that the secondary ports won't ever 'release', but instead just provide 'snapshots' (which won't have security team support) invalidates one of the big reasons to have a release (anyone can setup their own mirror and snapshot that to use themselves, simply providing a snapshot doesn't help anyone much)
