Few notes about dc10 backports:

* All backported packages have been built against a chrooted squeeze snapshot
from 20100704T132725Z.  Backported packages are available in a http repository
at http://people.debian.org/~tiago/debian/tiago-dc10/

* i386 only, but deb-src available.

* That said, the following should go to video team sources.list:

deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20100704T132725Z/ squeeze main
deb http://people.debian.org/~tiago/debian tiago-dc10/
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~tiago/debian tiago-dc10/

* Backported packages for dc10 have a modified Debian revision. Ex:
ffmpeg_0.6-2+dc10.1_i386.deb where "+dc10" means it's built for Debconf 10 and
".1" identifies its build version. It's important since we may want packages
which are also present in squeeze snapshot but we need the same version built
against backported libraries - so we avoid installing the squeeze version by
someone who is not aware of our beautiful workarounds.
