Re: debian backports of modemmanager, network-manager, and dependencies

There are new cellular modem related features in network-manager. They are all no-change back-ports. As I mentioned in my email, I backported these for my own use, and just wanted to share in case anyone else wanted them or wanted to sponsor them in jessie-backports.

Backported packages:
    * modemmanager 1.6.0-1
    * network-manager 1.2.4
    * libqmi 1.16.0-1
    * libmbim 1.14.0-1
    * audit (libaudit) 1:2.6.6-1
    * ppp 2.4.7-1+3

I don't see any particular reason to backport them, are them all no-change backports?
did you ask the maintainers to backport them? with Buster going to be released soon, I don't
see any good reason to maintain such packages, at least I would ask the maintainers to backport
them if needed.
