IRC> /msg dpkg simple sid backport

*dpkg* First, check for a backport on <debian-backports>.  If unavailable:
1) Add a deb-src line for sid (not a deb line!); ask me about <deb-src
sid> 2) enable debian-backports (see <bdo>) 3) aptitude update;
aptitude install build-essential; aptitude build-dep packagename;
apt-get -b source packagename; 4) install the resultant debs.  To change
compilation options, see <package recompile>; for versions newer than
sid see <uupdate>.
