Right, but that's not really relevant here.  This is about packages
which are up to date, have maintainers, but are not in old packages, and
not in the for-15.05 branch, they're only in the master branch.

Saso, oldpackages wasn't being built as binaries anyway, so this should
only really matter if you're building your own images right?  You can
proably just file an issue/pull on the packages repo on github to get a
package moved the for-15.05 branch.  It shouldn't be problematic in
cases like these, given that it didn't exist there, so can't really be
considered any sort of major version change.
