OK, so you are explicitly backing down from the Vancouver paper's ban
against arch-specific "testing" distributions for minor
architectures. Do you speak for the entire Vancouver authorship here?

Alas, I infer that this means that the ban against arch-specific
"stable" distributions for minor architectures (even if security
updates can be provided in some way or another) still stands.
Thus the minor architectures will still effectively be forced out
in the dark. Can you provide any rationale for this decision?
