Thats wrong too. If you upload a backport you will have to maintain it over
the whole lifetime of that release.
"Please note, that you are responsible for this backport from the time on
when it was accepted on debian-backports. This means, you have to keep track
of the changes in unstable, update your backport when a new version enters
testing and provide security updates when needed. If you are not willing or
capable of doing this, you better ask someone else (e.g. on the mentioned
mailinglist) to create and maintain the backport."
