I expect the limiting factor will be how fast the folks open
their repository to backports.  I plan on uploading 2.1 to unstable pretty
much immediately after the release (well, possibly waiting a week or so
since the archive administrators prefer people to smooth out the flood of
new packages so that the buildds and archive software isn't completely

In the past it's sometimes taken a month for to open for a
new distribution, but now that it's using dak and has more resources, I
expect it will be faster.
