Re: Submitting backport of Zabbix 2.0.2 (sid package)

Hi Christoph,

Yes it was, just a couple of script changes. Thank you Dmitry!

Sorry, I'm a little confused here. Wheezy is currently in freeze, so Squeeze will never get 2.x tree except by backport...
And since Alex has confirmed that backports can only be created from testing packages, we would need to wait for Wheezy to be released, then for the 2.x tree to be accepted into testing, before we can being to backport for both Squeeze and Wheezy, correct?

Million-dollar question there :) In my personal time I develop small apps on Ubuntu so I have some experience with the PPA system, but obviously that is a world away from being an official Debian maintainer. I created this backport since we are very much a debian shop, I think I could show my bosses how it is our best interests as well that I keep it up-to-date for us as well as the community at large, but the final decision would be theirs if I were to be a maintainer on company time.
