I may backport critical changes to them, but mostly they will be static (and remain Makefile based). As usual I will take patches to keep them up to date. The primary focus will remain on trunk with the latest OS. 

The branches are ready. I named them releases/Darwin8 and releases/Darwin9.  I also updated the install instructions on the wiki.

For Darwin 10, the MacPorts port will work as before, though it will follow the version tags instead of trunk.  For Darwin 8 & 9, I had to make a new port since we switched build systems. The "darwinbuild-legacy" port will pull the latest from the release branches and should work.
