Hi Rich, Thanks for taking care of cups-pdf in Stretch (Debian 9). While making uploads onto stretch-backports is possible, you probably should already know that uploading onto -backports is not the correct way of fixing bugs in Debian Stable, since the major part of stable users will never be able to benefit from packages in stable-backports repository. Have you talked with the current maintainer of cups-pdf already? If not, please consult with them and see if we could push a upload into stable main repository via proposed-updates mechanism. If the fix is trivial, a minimal patch on top of current stable cups-pdf source would be highly appreciated instead of preparing a fresh new upstream version (which is also likely to be rejected by the Release Team). If you have already talked with the printing team, their suggestion on such backport upload would be valuable too. Thank you and looking forward to hearing your thoughts. -- Regards, Boyuan Yang 在 2018年9月9日星期日 EDT 下午4:16:32，Rich Mack 写道： > Hi, > I am requesting a stretch-backport for cups-pdf.
