to break the recent silence here:

1) Bacula packages

As the current packages seem to be in a good shape, I propose that we
keep quiet and await the freeze. At the moment, the only thing I see
that would be good to have in a new upload before the freeze would be
the change of build-depends in commit
bbd42faf7bce6085da05fc5b4d7e0500e2ff0787 to help backports. But as it's
such a small change I'm waiting to see if something else comes up.

2) Backports

Are independent of the freeze, but as 7.4.3 and 7.4.4 are fully
compatible, it's currently not high on my todo list. This is mainly due
to the fact that backports should see extensive testing before an
upload. Volunteers are of course welcome :-)

3) Binary packages discussion at bacula-user

Bacula wants to release their own binary packages for "major
distrubtions". I'm not sure why they go to through all the effort, as
it's already getting packaged, we here even have backports to provide
the current version (ok, almost current right now). It might be a good
idea to ask the users there if and what they are missing, and what they
expect to be better about those other packages. I'd be happier if the
Bacula people would concentrate on making Bacula better instead of
working on packaging issues...

Awaiting comments,
