Is there a specific reason why wheezy-backports still has an outdated
branch of the nvidia driver (319.xx), or is it just because you
haven't had time to upload a newer version to backports yet? I just
wanted to check with you to make sure that there's nothing that's
actually blocking an updated nvidia backport.
