Bringing an umbrella distribution into the CPython release process seems to me like a very big leap and would that requires very careful consideration.  It would introduce a whole load of other dependencies into our release process, i.e. that the third-party packages (e.g. numpy, et al) included in Portable Python would become gating factors and dependencies for CPython releases.  Frankly, I don't thing we want to go there.  I don't have an objection to referring to users to other distributions like Portable Python (or Anaconda or whatever) but actually bringing it into the release process would need a *lot* of careful thought and planning and co-ordination.  Sounds like an interesting discussion for the language summit.
