Last year it took me more than the 30 (really nice) minutes scheduled --
and I was only backporting. To be honest, I (joining the audience)
wouldn't expect too anything else than a hard and short HOWTO. As long
as you dont intend to do more it might work -- but the title arises more

On the other hand, I'll talk quite a bit about packaging (less
technical, more conceptual and organizational) on Saturday (1700 -- I
start to love this time ;) so you maybe could point the curious in your
audience to this talk ;)

I doubt it. Especially X, KDE and GNOME ;) Ask Norbert Tretkowski for
some stats of backports.org ;)
