That was indeed the way I had understood things should be, and the reason
for my first posting. Would please somebody who is in charge for this step
up and state clearly what is the "official" debian policy about security
updates for woody? Should people running woody actually install also the
security updates meant for potato (and hence include the relevant URLs at
the end of apt-get's sources) or should security updates be uploaded to
the main woody tree?
