In which you missed:

"It covers all security updates since the release of sarge, which were
missing updated packages for the not yet official amd64 port. "

Not bad luck, its the best ISP in Australia. They have free
downloads of 13 or so Linux distributions including Debian,
and their sister company runs their own wires.

In answer to your question "what else do you want", I want
Debian to make the amd64 port *official* so the autobuilder,
and not a portage group, synchronises the archive, builds
boot CD/DVDs, and my ISP mirrors it. I'm *already* using a port, 
namely Ubuntu (which has considerably more resources than
the Debian amd64 porters).
