As any DD can commit to debian-security-support.git and also can upload
that package, just make sure to call it a team upload in d/changelog to
appease lintian and possibly other tools.

And then it would be ideal to upload the package to unstable and then
file a SRM bug to update the package in stretch, in addition to
uploading to jessie. (Probably this should also result in a DLA, not
100% sure though. Thoughts & comments definitly welcome.)

I believe it's fine if the version contraints (package version in
unstable higher than testing higher than stable higher than oldstable)
are temporarily not met, but I also believe it's important that they are
in the long run & most of the time.

If doing all this work is too much or tedious to you, please shout and I
will be happy to finish this. Please just do at least the initial
change in git to security-support-ended.deb8.
