Well, its no need to rush it "for backports" as we wont do any linking
/checking for that (since we dont have any update applet for that either)
But it's absolutely _critical_ to get it done for managing current
/updates as the amount of extra work to check deps and link them are
At the rate we are linking stuff to updates tree it will soon be
for pkg in *.rpm; do ln $pkg ../updates/$pkg;done
And comparing with mdv and their linking they have it easy...
As only /main is supported they only have to check that,
~ 2950 srpms
~ 7600 rpms
Compare that to our /core:
~ 9970 srpms
~ 19340 rpms
Then we have /nonfree to cover (as mdv non-free)
Then we have /tainted
(mdv didn't need to think about that either as that was plf)
So as a carrot (or a whip) to get someone to try to fix #2317,
one could say "it needs to be fixed before opening backports"
