Why are you presuming to tell someone who's been a Debian developer since
2000 about the reasons for non-US's existence?

If you made fewer assumptions, you might be wrong less.

Florian asked whether and where the woody packages for non-US and
security.d.o were being archived, he didn't ask for a primer on Debian's
support cycle.  If you don't actually know the answer to the question being

experience of you admiring the sound of your own voice.
