OK, I re-read through this thread just now. I guess it was agreed (or 
not refuted at any rate) that because the "porting"  page was a known 
entity and the non_ASF page was not (not even linked anywhere) to put 
winPenPack on porting.

Yes, we should change the title. Other statements we have in the 
Distribution FAQ will need to be changed as well because of this.
We should supply additional information on what the criteria is for 
being listed on the newly designed "porting" page.
