Yeah, I kinda knew you'd know.
I guess your opinion is not changed by the fact that backports is now an offical repo within Debian and not some additional repo outside?
Not my opinion, only the hostname that I mention :-)
I therefore still recommend to generally use highest possible debhelper compatibility level of the oldest security-supported Debian distro - i.e. currently 6 and 7 when security support for Lenny is dropped.Ehm; off-by-one? oldstable = lenny has 7.0.15, stable = squeeze has 8.0.0.
Sorry, not off-by-one but CDBS-centric: CDBS-using packages: Lenny=6, Squeeze=? non-CDBS-using packages: Lenny=7, Squeeze=8(I am so used to packaging backporting-friendly that I honestly do not know if sensible to bump to debhelper 8 when only Squeeze needs support)
