It's depend on the workflow.
Do you want to :
- quickly be able to see all backports packages for a release
- or see the differents versions for a package

IMHO for the former, you'd better add a query/report page where the
user could select some filters and then have an answer. Some of the
filters category :
release = <distribution_version1>, <distribution_version_2>
category = <release>, <backport>, <testing>
sort by = <category>, <release date>

You should keep the UI simple, and then add a query page to allow
complex queries for power users.
