It seems to be mainly a problem with various names floating around. In
aj's mail "tier-1" seems to mean "ftp.d.o arch" _not_ "released arch"
which he discusses one paragraph earlier.
So the clarification: ftp.d.o mirroring and release status are not
strongly coupled (but probably only released archs will become
ftp.d.o archs...). Just don't use words like "tier-1" that aren't defined
in the mail ;)
