Support for etch-backports discontinued on February 15th


since security support for Debian Etch (4.0) is discontinued on Februrary
15th [1] etch-backports will close its doors the same day. 

What does that mean? 

- No uploads to etch-backports are allowed after this date
- Downloads will still be available, but every user is recommended to 
  update to Debian Lenny / lenny-backports. 

Just some numbers:

etch backports had 528 (source) backports with ~ 1300 accepted uploads. 
I have to say "Thank you" to every contributor without your work
backports.org wouldn't be possible. 

Thanks for you attention 
Alex - backports.org ftp-master
