The only remaining thing I could just figure out is to use git to manage the
ABS tree, generate branches for every OS it's being ported, and provide
monthly sets of patches providing OS specific changes that don't affect
ArchLinux at all (and AL devel don't have to take any action on them if they
don't want).

All this monthly set patches can be managed with tags.

By the way, I don't eat donuts, but nice joke :-D
