I have historically backported new versions to debian stable, as the
Debian policy is to never upgrade packages in stable but just do
security updates or fix bugs in that version.

Etch is the new stable release so I should stop providing packages for
Sarge and start to provide packages for Etch.

I am not yet sure I have time to do this. If I can't I will discontinue
the service of providing packages for Debian Stable (Etch currently).
