That's already answered by our actions: the i386 port gets more
attention than any other port out there, and there are fairly vast
differences between the best-support (i386) and worst-supported (I
won't name names :-)) ports out there. Everything seems to get into
all ports eventually, but definitely not at the same rate.

Anyway, Charles was dead right on this one; Greg can set up his
CVSup server and if people use it, great; we can have a flamewar
about putting a CNAME for it under If nobody uses it
we just don't get to have that flamewar. I'm sure we can come up
with something else to fight about anyway. :-)
