I don't think that's a good idea to put it there, especially if you
consider that there's lots of core packages that would need to be
backported as well. That would mean getting in touch with all
maintainers, etc. I'd more would be for maintaining some unofficial
repositories, maybe on Alioth.

By the way, shall we open an openstack.debian.net on Alioth, to gather
all our stuff?

And many, many, python packages, like python-webob, python-eventlet,
python-boto, python-sphinx, and many more. That is far from trivial,
because I'm suspecting that many of our (build) dependencies are lacking
a version depends.
