Server Team Backports

PPA description

This PPA provides specific versions of software that are not suitable for the mainstream Ubuntu release to partners.

The Ubuntu Backports [1] are the most similar approach to what this PPA provides, all constraints and limitations of Backports on security [2] and stability [3] apply here as well, but in addition to the backport rules there are additional limitations on this PPA. It does not cover the guaranteed functionality of *all* Reverse-Dependencies [4] nor the safe upgrade path [5] outside LTS-to-LTS upgrades.

These packages are not suitable for regular production deployments engaged with UA support.

The process is mostly automated and described here [6]. With a repository of launchpad recipes [7] rebuilding those backports as soon as the appear in git-ubuntu [8][9] imported repositories.
