Default How to find list of backports for Debian squeeze?

How can I find a list of all available backports for Debian squeeze?
Google and DDG turn up nothing relevant. I searched this list's
archives and also didn't find anything. Leaving the search field blank
on http://backports-master.debian.org/Packages/ only returns an error.
The backports FAQ doesn't say anything.

So, is there a list available? I want to browse and see what the
options are before I install Debian on my computer.

For amd64:

wget http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports/dists/squeeze-backports/{main,contrib,non-free}/binary-amd64/Packages.gz
-q -O - | zcat | awk '/^Package/ { p = $2 }; /^Version/ { printf
"%-40s %s
", p, $2 }' | sort

Yeah, it's quite lengthy, but the output looks nice.

In case you don't have a host available where the above can be
executed, I'll unicast the output from the commands.

Thanks, Pelle, for both the command and the output. That's just what I needed.

echo 'deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main contrib non-free' >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/squeeze-backports.list
aptitude update
aptitude search ~Obackports

See also the aptitude manual for search and/or output options.

Kind regards,
Andrei

I think backport packages are now included at the usual web search
facility:

http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages

Not an ordered list, though, you have to type the name of the package or
something that can be searched (filename, description...).

Maybe here? :-?

http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports/indices/
