Well actually the blocking factor at the moment seems to be the
macosforge infrastructure changes. After that I believe the plan is to
set up a buildbot for running MPAB, and once that's running it shouldn't
be too hard to write a script that decides whether a port's license is
known good and allows syncing the archive to a download location.

It's frustrating having to wait on things outside our control, but I'm
sure Bill is doing everything he can to make it happen.
