Package: release-notes
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze


the current release notes contain:

    The <literal>backports.org</literal> repository mainly contains packages
    from <quote>testing</quote>, with reduced version numbers
    so that the upgrade path from &oldreleasename; backports to
    &releasename; still works.  However, there are a few backports
    which are made from unstable: security updates, plus the following
    exceptions: Firefox, the Linux kernel, OpenOffice.org, and X.Org.
    If you do not use one of these exceptions, you can safely upgrade
    to &releasename;.  If you use one of these exceptions, set the
    <literal>Pin-Priority</literal> (see <citerefentry> <refentrytitle>apt_preferences</refentrytitle> <manvolnum>5</manvolnum> </citerefentry>)
    temporarily to <literal>1001</literal> for all packages from &releasename;,
    and you should be able to do a safe dist-upgrade too.

The current versions of iceweasel, linux-2.6 and openoffice.org in
lenny-bpo seem to be older than the versions in squeeze, and there is no
X.Org backport afaik.  So maybe these paragraphs are not necessary?
