Care of your packages Was: Accepted dh-ocaml 0.4.1~bpo50+1 (source all)

Hi there,

this is meant as general problem and not regarded only to Romain, so no direct 
fingerpointing, this is just meant as example.

Today I was working on a (private) backport and did need dh-ocaml, which is 
not in stable. Looking on lenny-bpo I recognized, there is a package there ... 
but unfortunately horrible outdated.

<cite="http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=contribute";>Before uploading 
please think about how useful the package is for stable users and if you want 
to support the package until support for the distribution you uploaded 

This doesn't mean, you have to backport every minor change, but you should 
take care for new major releases and of course, fixing security bugs until the 
end of support for the target distribution.

So please ... keep care of you packages, think twice ... if you conclude you 
are unable to support your packages, please don't upload them!

Regarding dh-ocaml, I did upload a recent package ... but I hope the origin 
uploader will take care if it in the future.

Thanks and with kind regards, Jan.
