Joerg announced that lenny-backports is already working. To
upload to backports.org you need to be a Debian Developer and request
your key to be added to the backports.org keyring, if you aren't a DD
you'll have to look for a package sponsor.
As long as the package is in "testing" it is accepted in
backports.org, that's the "Rule of Thumb".
