please upload the packages somewhere so that one can review them. note,

OK, I have rebuilt my packages. You can find them here:


I have also uploaded the public key of the pair I used to sign the packages.

The file 01-backport-commands.txt lists the commands I used to compile the packages. I would be grateful if someone had the time to review it and give suggestions or tell me about any errors.
