Please coordinate with the Nagios team

Not backporting icingaweb2 along with icinga2 is a bit of a disservice
to icinga2 users. They still need to keep using the upstream repository
if they want current versions of both on stretch.

Why aren't you using the icingaweb2 packages? They are pretty much
identical to the upstream sources.

If your going to backport icinga2, you must at least maintain your
stretch-backports branch in the git repository. Hence you should first
join the nagios-team on Salsa.
