I've stumbled upon this page https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/backporting-av-software-trisquel-9, I wanted to add a program to the list but decided to ask here first, since I'm not familiar with Trisquel backporting. I need the new version of Qtractor, when I look at packages in Etiona here: http://archive.trisquel.info/trisquel/dists/etiona/main/binary-amd64/Packages, I only can find an old 0.8.5 version. First of all, is it possible to backport a new Qtractor 0.9.8 or 0.9.9, and if it is possible, then second, where should I put my request - simply add it to that backporting list?

I just built Qtractor 0.9.9 on Trisquel 9 without running into any
problems. It should be easy to backport 0.9.9 from Eoan.[1] I've added
Qtractor to the wiki page. If you think of any other A/V packages worth
backporting feel free to add them to the page yourself.

And another question - are backports confined only to Ubuntu, or software can be backported from other deb-based systems?

"Importing" might be a better word than "backporting" in this case, but
yes.
