It still holds, the problem is time constraints, which is also the
reason why Jan did all the work until now and I still use the old 5.0.2

Pietro, feel free to join the pkg-bacula team to get acquainted with the
process. I think the backports admins will have no problems if one of
the core maintainers will supervise your backport (and thus will take
