This is the first I've heard of 10.3 not being supported anymore.
Historically MacPorts has supported the current Mac OS X release and
the previous one, and granted, 10.5 was just released. But a lot of
ports aren't working so great on Leopard right now . If a decision
is made to drop 10.3 support, I would hope that we would wait until
the 10.5 bug reports stop bucketing in and we can honestly say that
the MacPorts experience on 10.5 is at least as good as it was on
10.4. And we are currently far from that.
Note that the new guide  does not seem to indicate what versions
of Mac OS X are supported. It should so indicate, fairly near the top.
