Hi all,

This discussion becomes seriously off-topic for this list, but I would
like to clarify one thing about backports.org: similarly to the main
Debian archive, only debian developpers can upload to this service.
Therefore, at the upload point of view, backports.org is as secure as
Debian itself.

have a nice day,
