View Full Version : What about forwardports?

What about packages that are still not updated to latest versions even in breezy, but some user decides to make a .deb of them. Recent example being Gnomebaker. Or making .debs out of bleeding edge CVS that adds a great future, but breezy is slow on including them.

I just called them forwardports lacking a better word. Anyway, shouldn't there be sth. like an unofficial repository for that. Or is that hoary-extras?
