    Is it the second one, which I can replace with the official one?

    thanks
    Yes, the second one can be replaced.

    I think it needs to be noted that the extras portion of the backports will NOT be on the ubuntu servers. I believe those will still need to be supported by and hosted by the community (read: not canonical) due to legal reasons.

    There is a lot of backports which haven't been moved to the official backports repository: firefox, f-spot, abiword, blam, mono...

    If you use the official backports, will it cause troubles when upgrading to breezy?

    no, official backports will not cause problems.

    Any upgrades tha you may get are completely safe (maybe even safer)

    And not everything has moved yet, but will move.

    If you could send me links regarding the packages that haven't moved, I can get them built.

    that means only with the new bp, which got accepted, you won't get in trouble. But it could be with the others, right?

    Re: Official Backports Launched!

    So are file names changing with the move, droping the "ubp" from the version info or are these new backports that are showing up?

    I'm stuck on dialup and would rather not upgrade the gimp and acroread just to change the name.

    When can we expect the AMD64 backports be available?

    Re: Official Backports Launched!

    Is there anything we can do to fix the missing packages?
    I know it's only an annoyance but I don't like having so many listed as (local or obsolete).
    Will re-adding the old backports repo (mirrormax) do the trick, or will that cause other problems?
