With major problems due to the insane high space, bandwith and cpu
load requirement on alioth for this.
Every upcoming port will need ~10Gb source archive and ~10Gb
binaries (half that for 50%). It is also likely that once a port gets
past say 20% it quickly goes all the way to 90+% (unless it is hurd).
It would be nice to have a common place for upcoming ports. A common
source mirror with a reduces set of packages that make up the base
system, build-essentials and build important packages. They wouldn't
need to include gnome and kde and such. Once a port reaches a point
where it needs gnome/kde it should be ready to enter scc.
