I'm a little confused as to what you mean here.  The set of packages in
stable doesn't change outside of point releases - that's rather the
definition of a point release.

As I mentioned above, they can't be in Squeeze before the next point
release.  In terms of squeeze-updates, I'm not convinced that the gosa
update meets the published criteria for packages released via that
suite.  Other packages might, but it's difficult to speculate without
specific details.

Given that we're (I assume) talking about -edu maintained packages,
would(n't) taking them from p-u be an option?

Or he may not? :-)
