I know you are maintaing backport repositories for folsom and grizzly, thanks for this great work! Is it expected that these unofficial repositories will be ported to official "wheezy-backports"? Sometime ago I read that only folsom would be on wheezy-backports.

In relation to that. This morning we were testing Folsom install with these repos following the debian wiki howto and we found some bugs, what's the best way to report them?

Interesting comments. The options are clearer to me now.
