Have you seen one porter who believes that taking an unstable snapshot
and make a release off of that will actually be enough? Those porters
that I've seen participating in this thread actually said it would be
entirely useless. Even more so, Joey Schulze told us that this idea
would not work in terms of supporting it from his part, so it's a
bad idea in general.

Obviously the porters could all do their own releases, but then you're
duplicating work that does not need duplication in a single project; you
could just as well ask us to go to sourceforge.net and release there,
because the net effect would be the same.
