As always please give me feedback and I'm still waiting that
somebody sends me a list of nice apt-get able backport archives

Here is my list:

Some comments:

- All version numbers in these repositories seem to be sane, i.e. the
  version number is lower than the official sarge/sid version so updates
  will hopefully be painless when sarge is released.

- Adrian also has a backport of OpenOffice.org in his contrib section.
  I don't know the difference between his packages and the ones from

- Colin's Apache 2.0 backport is currently at version 2.0.45 which
  contains at least one DoS. But it's the only way to get subversion on

- The last two repositories include a lot of library updates. If you add
  them to sources.list you'll need to download a lot of packages after
  you have installed the packages from the CD and your system will be
  very different from standard woody. This is also true for KDE 3.1.
