Indeed, but – as I said – the regular debian-ports archive is
also weekly snapshotted, and Aurélien can persist them TTBOMK
(like etch-m68k was).

I’ve got a manually created mini-repository for m68k, but
experience shows acceptance of these is questionable even
if done by a DD, *and* you need custom archive keys, so I
think it’s best to stick to “more official” ways if these
contain all needed packages in unstable (or debootstrap’s
patched to handle unreleased).
