What exactly does the 'scope of the port' mean?  Suites of packages,
tasksel tasks, desktop environments?  Particular use cases (server,
laptop, desktop)?  Or something else?

I'm grateful we've been given another 2 months to work on this.  The
init system debate might have come to a conclusion by then, and it could
have some bearing on this.  If some packages (potentially the whole
GNOME desktop environment) get a hard systemd dependency that would
somewhat reduce the scope of the port for us I think.
