Re: "Automatic" backports

There is also some benefit to allowing a package to hit testing in advance of 
backporting it.  At least glaring "will not install", "breaks system", 
or "does not run as packaged" would stand a chance of getting caught before 
being pushed to backports.

In fact, it might be a good idea to formalize the requirement, i.e. "Package 
must have been available for download in testing for 72 hours prior to the 
backport being available".

We know there will be bugs in testing packages.   If this were not the case, 
we wouldn't have the testing structure and policy.
