"The backports.org repository mainly contains packages from ‚Äútesting‚ÄĚ,
with reduced version numbers so that the upgrade path from lenny
backports to squeeze still works. However, there are a few backports
which are made from unstable: security updates, plus the following
exceptions: Firefox, the Linux kernel, OpenOffice.org, and X.Org."
