IMHO we should either have our own repositories for more up-to-date
versions of specific packages (I don't think backports is a great
solution, because you get a big blob of possibly unstable stuff you
probably don't care about having the latest versions of in addition to
stuff like latest gnash), or just incorporate them into more frequent
I don't think we should be dependent on upstream to incorporate packages
before we use them; I'm not personally against corporation with upstream
in general, I just don't think that corporation should be a requirement
for an improvement to gnewsense.
