With ports, you are meant to be able to specify any full path to it in
your --enable-add-ons configure option; a subdirectory "ports" directly
inside libc is not the only option.

I don't think there's much need for releases; we intend the release
branches such as EGLIBC 2.5 to be stable at all times so that if they
build and pass testing they are suitable for use, and I don't think that
declaring a particular point on a release branch to be a release would
make it more stable than any other randomly selected point on that branch.
The symbol versions and so the sequence of release branches are determined
by FSF glibc.
