I've yet to hear a specific concern about a known failure that derives from the backporting work that anarcat did. I know of several concrete failures that will result from users of Jessie pulling enigmail from a.m.o. telling jessie users that they should pull from a.m.o. is effectively doing them a disservice, if they think they're being supported. If i was responsible for maintaining jessie, i'd prefer to go the route of the backported fixes, but i don't have the capacity to spend a lot of time on jessie itself, so i guess my preferences should be weighed accordingly. --dkg
