And in general, asking I was just refering to the raised dependencies for transition reasons. As it seems that's a usual procedere in your group, why not leave a hint in every involved package? In my eyes the changelog could be missinterpreted. > the usual maintainer doesn't harm so that you're sure about the > implications of the backport. I totally agree with you (and I think I stated this more than once in this recent discussion). Unfortunately my experiences in the past was often, that maintainers often don't care about backporting (,even of stable and old- stable). This is absolutly not true in general and I had also positive experiences here.
