If you plan to maintain these backports, please add yourself to
Uploaders.  However, as I noted on mentors, it might be easier to start
with a jessie backport instead, doing all the generic stuff on that
branch and inheriting those for wheezy.

I build with sbuild on a separate machine and also have to sign the
files, so I resorted to doing this manually (couldn't find a way to
automate the process).

I did this locally, but I'd like to wait a little for some input from
Russ before pushing the merge and deleting the jessie branch.
