Hi, since security support for Debian Etch (4.0) is discontinued on Februrary 15th [1] etch-backports will close its doors the same day.

What does that mean?

Just some numbers:

etch backports had 528 (source) backports with ~ 1300 accepted uploads. I have to say "Thank you" to every contributor without your work backports.org wouldn't be possible.

Thanks for you attention Alex - backports.org ftp-master
