Security updates from BPO (was: Good practise for using etch-backports when lenny is released)
Just *my* opinion...

... a little bit upset by your comment ....
IIRC BPO started with automatic updates of installed packages and there
was no discussion about changing this behaviour, right? Maybe I just
missed this discussion, so if there was one please give my a hint.
I'm *really* interested how many people out there put backports.org in
their sources.list and are running vulnerable versions because of *NOT*
getting "security updates" from BPO.
Yes, I know that people who are using BPO *should* read this mailing
list but I don't think 5% or more are doing so... So from a BPO user
point of view this isn't really what he/she expects.
