Besides that this is something not done before, are there any (known) technical reasons against it? I really can't see any, especially as new kernel or xulrunner packages do introduce new source+binary packages.. > I realise it's not entirely the answer you were looking for, but I'd be > happy for you to upload -artwork, -doc, -install and sitesummary > already. ok, cool! Will do so. Just another question: ~deb7u1 will cause the version number to be lower than in sid and jessie, but also lower than what we have in Edu Wheezy currently. OTOH, +deb7u1 will cause the version to be higher than in sid+jessie. Do you have any idea how to solve that, short of doing dummy uploads to sid too? I tend to lean on using ~deb7u1 and ignore the Edu archives "perspective"... cheers, Holger
