I agree upon that I should be doing something rather than whinning. But I',m
noit involved with the Debian Project and I can't take any decisions here.

This is not quite a new image. It's a confusing image. I can point this URL
to 10 people which are *not* using Debian, and 4 of them will ask: "why isn't
this official then? or is it official, maybe?! where can I download it?"

But I disagree on the unusability of Debian Sarge.

Again, I'm just a user, I can't decide. I'm using backports.org, but I'd
rather prefer to have some of them officially endorsed.

Maybe approved backports could be added as a different tree, like having:
"main", "contrib", "non-free", "approved-backports".
