So the question is - why do we not release Woody for the 6 architectures
and release others when they are ready? I sounds a bit weird, but I mean
it really seriously. When we have a working structure for the majority
of architectures (to be more precise, for >> 90 percent of Debian
users), why not use it AS-IS?
I see your point, releasing without security infrastructure is
dangerous, there may be already crackers waiting for it. But waiting too
long is wastage of time.
