This is starting to sound like an empty construct after all :)

Anyway, I think we should not be worrying about making HaikuPorts an
official part of the Haiku project or not. As is it, there is a clear
interest from a number of Haiku devs in the HaikuPorts project. This
results in the fact that there is already some sort of cooperation
between the two projects. I believe this can benefit both and hope this
cooperation will expand in the future.

I think it's safe to assume that HaikuPorts is not going to support
other operating systems. After all, we are all Haiku/BeOS enthusiasts.

I agree.
