There is no security *team* support > but there is security *package updates* by the individual maintainers. I don't see where is the confusion. There is no security support. It's written verbatim. This doesn't mean there is no security update, but these updates are pushed on a best effort basis. Moreover, backports do not accept security patches. You can only push a version in testing (or unstable). Notably, if the version in testing is not easily backportable (because of new dependencies), you may wait quite some time before you get a security update. -- How apt the poor are to be proud. -- William Shakespeare, "Twelfth-Night"
