Well... I read the New Manitainer's Guide, but that's about it. Time for me to  	
learn more probably :)

As I re-read it - it does mention pbuilder but with no details.

I really do need to learn more... Is there a *useful* howto on pbuilder? All I 
found for now is http://www.netfort.gr.jp/~dancer/software/pbuilder.html . It 
does not mention the single most important question - how do I control which 
packages and from which repos are in the pbuilder chroot?

Good point. I'll write to him. Of course it would be really cool if he did the 
backport - I'm not experienced enough really; but if he won't then one has to 
start somewhere.
