To be able to evalutate this requestn Stable Release Managers will need
to see
a complete debdiff (based on what stable currently provides). Concerning
backports, you are free to upload at any time (provided your upload meets
backports criteria). Debian Backports is not handled by the Release
Team, and is
not "locked" as stable.
