IMO the right fix is to always use the BTS for backports. Everything else is 
just a bad workaround.

I know that some maintainers dont want to be bothered with backports, but I 
consider that plainly wrong. Obviously they are entitled to have that 
opinion, and noone can force volunteers to do anything, but IMO that attitude 
is a disservice to both our users and our project. 

IMO backports where the BTS should not be used should be rejected.

And for those maintainers who dont want to be bothered by bugs in the 
backports of their package, the BTS should allow them not to receive mails, 
but other teammembers (eg those doing the backport) should use the BTS. And 
all packages should be team maintained anyway, right? ;-p
