I forgot one important piece of information:

Any project that requires full dedication from all committers to a
"stable/release ports branch" is bound to be criticized to death and
anyway bound to failure (IMHO). Any such proposal should identify some
volunteer party with well defined roles. Remember ports work is all
volunteer, you can't impose any work on any party!
