testing → stable-backports → oldstable-backports-sloppy

So, as long as there is no stretch, there is no stretch-backports, there
is no jessie-backports-sloppy.

You can of course upload anything to jessie-backports that has entered
testing, but I guess for everything that does not enter testing during
the freeze, you'll have to wait.

I'd also strongly advice against uploading new upstream versions of
existing packages that will not make it into stretch to unstable now.

DMs or DDs, please correct me!)
