I have not checked Debian Astro policy but for dealing with backports in
Git repositories I'd recommend to follow what we agreed upon in Debian
I admit I'm not very motivated to sponsor backports. I somehow need to
draw a line what I can do and what not. However, I'd recommend to read
the backport guidelines. As far as I remember its not necessary to be
a DD but rather to get accepted by the backport team.
