Are you going to have to do all of these? Or are the respective
maintainers willing to maintain the backports, maybe after you
prepared them? Maintaining a backport does include uploading
security fixes, when they come around…

This never hurts; however, it's also not necessary. It's more
important that the maintainers of the packages involved are aware.
You could write a message to all of them and CC the backports list.

Thanks for your work on this!
