I agree with Julien that the best place to put things are in
backports, but the question is if is if worth if to prepare a backport
of Essex for Squeeze, and if we have enough man power to do it. I
prefer to focus on having Essex+Wheezy and prepare backports of Folsom
to Wheezy, but that's something that we need to discuss after a couple
of beers :)

PD.- Why always that one decide to have a relaxing weekend in the
middle of nowhere (no net, no tech devices...) the mailing lists start
to have long and interesting conversations?
