It's not a valid upload candidate for lenny-backports, since the version
in testing/unstable does not require rebuilding to work on lenny.

The normal way of handling these cases would be to add, for example,
testing or unstable APT lines, with appropriate package pinning to
avoid pulling anything except the required packages, or to put packages
in a site-local repository.

The last time this was discussed Martin was keen to provide a repository
with just the request-tracker3.8 package and dependencies not satisfied
in lenny, but I'm still in two minds about whether this is worth the
extra work. I certainly don't have a use case for it (since we already
have our own private apt repositories for local builds).

Martin, could you think again about whether you are able to get by with the
appropriate package pinning?
