As backports.org is now semi official ( ie links from the packages web
interface ) I propose to document properly how to deal with the
backported packages when doing a etch2lenny upgrade.

This text should go in the userbackports section of the release note
and is a rewording of http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=faq.

Many thanks for your text. It's added now in the SVN, please review.

The text looks good to me, however I noticed a mistake
line 380:

temporarily to <literal>1001</literal> for all packages from etch

should be replaced with

temporarily to <literal>1001</literal> for all packages from &releasename

I forgot to update this part of the text when rewording the backports FAQ.
Please update it, because the current version of the text gives a *wrong* advice: if you apt-pin all the packages to the etch version, you would actually never upgrade to lenny ...
