Yes, for "base" parts (the subset of Sucrose which all activities depend
on) it makes best sense for me as distributor that each branch has a
complete set of tarballs.
Alternatively there ought to be a single, obvious to find canonical
place which declared which parts officially span which multiple
branches. But really I prefer the (in my opinion) simpler approach of

This *only* relates to core parts. Activities we have no problems in
Debian handling even if they span multiple branches. Or actually, we do
