backports improvements

get it more official than now

backports is now an official supported service. It though is not fully integrated yet. There are several services that should still offer better support.

Some places where better integration is feasible but not yet done:

  • The BTS doesn't has support for tracking its versions yet, or different maintainer addresses
  • The packages site doesn't show its changelogs
  • dput complaints about included orig source in +1 uploads
  • dpkg-genchanges doesn't include orig source in +1 uploads automatically
  • some lintian warnings should be silenced for backported packages (NMU check e.g.)
  • potentially many more ...
