This is *not* obvious as well. It's not written anywhere that should be
experimental, with beta/alpha programs....
A backport is just something that is not part of the release, yes,
but also that should not be get through update.
There's no reasons to talk about backports in fedora probably,
since all goes to update for the most, our policy says (or will do)
what can (and what can't) go to backports.
Said that, backports have been approved last night meeting,
let's talk about bp subject again in case of problems (that of course
we won't have since we're very good at :D )
