I agree with what you wrote above Ben. Though that is not in a direct
relation with what we can do for packages we care about (I already gave
a small list of very important packages for me).
Also, what one has to do currently to get packages updated in stable is
demotivating (don't get me wrong: I do understand why we have things
like they are in Stable, though one got to be blind to not see the
demotivating side of it). I don't intend to implement such
administrative overhead for updating this very-old-stable security
repository. If we are only a small group of volunteer working on it, it
will be easier to implement as well.
