Will there be a backports repo soon?

Just curious about this. One of the reasons I switched to Mint from Ubuntu is that 5 is supposed to have programs backported. There are a couple things I'd like to see already (Perl 5.10, AbiWord 2.6.3). Any news when/if this will happen?

Unfortunately there is always more to do than you have time for :)
I know Clem has written something about this as well as the community repos so it's considered but I can't give you any timetable
