Just to not have any wrong understandings here:
You MUST NOT have anything from outside the main archive.
Thats a hard rule we enforced for all the newly added ports either, up
to the point where we imported their initial set of packages signed by a
special key, just so we can track that all of them got replaced with a
new build, done solely with packages out of the main archive.
Looking at that, you are plenty late by now already. When do you plan to
actually get included into testing? The later you go, the less likely it
is to do so, and I imagine it highly unlikely that it will happen after
the freeze, so your time left for action here is pretty short.
Keep in mind that talking to the Release Team and getting them to agree
with the inclusion will also take time...

Especially with the time this will take.
Maybe, just once, someone will call me 'Sir' without adding, 'You're
making a scene.'
