deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main


Quote:
Dear users and supporters of the backports service!

The Backports Team is pleased to announce the next important step
on getting backports more integrated. People who are reading
debian-infrastructure-announce[1] will have seen that there was an
archive maintenance last weekend: starting with wheezy-backports the
packages will be accessible from the regular pool instead of a separate
one, and all backports uploads will be processed through the regular
upload queue (including those for squeeze-backports and
squeeze-backports-sloppy).


== For Users ==

What exactly does that mean for you? For users of wheezy, the
sources.list entry will be different, a simple substitute of squeeze
for wheezy won't work. The new format is:

deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main

So it is debian instead of debian-backports, and offered through the
regular mirror network. Feel invited to check your regular mirror if
it carries backports and pull from there.


== For Contributers ==

What does it mean for contributing developers? Uploads for backports
are no longer to be pushed to backports-master but to
ftp.upload.debian.org, like any other regular package. Also, given that
the packages are served from the same archive install there is no need
to include the original tarball in the upload any longer because the
archive knows it (Squeeze and beyond).

Also, given that the upload goes to the same upload queue, there is
only one keyring used anymore, so no more pain with expired or replaced
keys. We though still keep the rule of adding your UID to an ACL list
(this also includes DM additions). This is mostly only to give us the
chance to remind you that uploads to backports are directly available
for installation onto stable systems and you thus should take special
care there. We carefully tried to take over the old ACLs, in case you
can't upload anymore, please tell us[4] so we can look into the issue.

I've mentioned wheezy-backports (and squeeze-backports-sloppy) a few
times here already, and you might wonder when it will be available.
Technically, it is available from now on. Practically, while you could
already upload to it, the set up of the buildd network is more painful
than expected, so please allow the Buildd Team some days for setting
them up.

The upload rules for wheezy-backports are the same: packages that are
in the next suite are accepted. Given that Jessie isn't created yet, we
want you to think about whether the package you want to upload will go
into Jessie final, and that you are taking a closer look once Jessie is
created and the package entered there about the upgradeability. For the
time until the suite is available, you can see this as relaxed upload
rule.

The same goes for squeeze-backports-sloppy: packages from two suites
after Squeeze are acceptable, which turns it into the same relaxed rule
as wheezy-backports above. Please also keep in mind that uploads to
squeeze-backports-sloppy usually should be accompanied by uploads to
wheezy-backports so people are able to upgrade from
squeeze-backports-sloppy to wheezy with wheezy-backports.


== Thanks ==

Finally, we want to thank the FTP-Master Team for their fine work on
making this happen.

The documentation on backports-master[2] has been updated, and in
case of any doubt or question, feel free to ask them on either the
debian-backports mailinglist[3], or in case of sensitive topics ask
us[4] directly.


Enjoy!
Rhonda for the Backports Team

A few months ago I commented out the deb-multimedia repositories and I don't seem to have any problems. I did so so that any dependency issues I had I could link definitively to the Debian repositories.
What do the deb-multimedia repositories contain nowadays that isn't in the main repositories?

libdvdcss2, w32-codecs and w64-codecs is all I can really think of off the top of my head that I need. There are other packages such as m4baker that are useful though if you are into making audiobooks that people with iProducts can use.

Thanks, it appears I may need to reinstate deb-multimedia then as I have the libdvdcss package still.

I created my own repo with reprepro and have that and other packages I need in it, saves having multiple repositories in my sources.list apart from the standard Debian repositories.

You should have them. See post #258; same page as your post just a bit above it.
