Backports integrated into the main archive
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Dear users of the backports service!
The Backports Team is pleased to announce the next important step
on getting backports more integrated. People who are reading
debian-infrastructure-announce will have seen that there was an
archive maintenance last weekend: starting with wheezy-backports the
packages will be accessible from the regular pool instead of a separate
== For Users ==
What exactly does that mean for you? For users of wheezy, the
sources.list entry will be different, a simple substitute of squeeze
for wheezy won't work. The new format is:
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main
So it is debian instead of debian-backports, and offered through the
regular mirror network. Feel invited to check your regular mirror if
it carries backports and pull from there.
== For Contributers ==
Please read the mail to debian-devel-announce instead. :)
Just one thing mentioned here: technically wheezy-backports and
squeeze-backports-sloppy have been opened with this move too. Only, the Buildd
Team needs some days to set up the buildd network for the new suites, so please
be a bit more patient.
== Thanks ==
Finally, we want to thank the FTP-Master Team for their fine work on
making this happen.
The documentation on backports-master has been updated, and in
case of any doubt or question, feel free to ask them on either the
debian-backports mailinglist, or in case of sensitive topics ask
Rhonda for the Backports Team
