The ones that the maintainer of the package decides is the best for
keeping the package which will update in stable usable, as long as the
packages is created against stable, is complying the policy created for such a
repository and everything is consistant.

The user might decide to use or not to use such a repository, but for the
interest of the users, it might be better than leave them with 2.20 in woody
or having to refer to backports.org, which is not having such a release
