So maybe this point would need to be addressed then? I mean, we'd need
to provide backport repositories that are perceived to be official
enough for users who would want to use them. Pushing updates to these
backport repositories would be subject to a specific backporting
policy. If this idea has legs, I guess the SIGs who are interested
enough should stand up and contribute a backporting policy proposal.

Yeah, I guess this falls into the "bugs as usual" category :-) Hopefully
those will be fixed eventually.
