How reliable /is/ backports.org, though? I used it very briefly and
ended up with some very broken packages, and a system that required
much manual dpkg/dselect fun to sort things out. When you're dealing
with hordes of servers, it's pain I'd rather avoid.
Do they have any policies defined for package quality for their
maintainers (such as testing, etc)?
