Dear Gerfried, Backports team, and FTP team, this is awesome !
Many thanks for making this happen.
This integration opens the theoretical possibility to "migrate" a package from
testing to backports. In the case of packages with good regression tests, this
would be economical for everybody.
Is that something considered for the future ?
Have a nice day,
