As part of the openoffice.org bug triage I asked users to test their bugs with recent versions of oo.org, and referred the users of the stable branch to backports.org.
I got a lot of responses from users saying they didn’t know about the backports repository. For most of them that’s a time saver in the process of getting newer software. Some were glad to upgrade and to confirm their bugs with the recent version.
I’m wondering how should we publish this (unofficial) service? Having results from backports.org appear in packages.d.o was a good start. Maybe adding a link from the PTS as a reminder to the maintainer? (but this don’t help the users).
Any ideas ?
