PPA dependencies should be different for each series

Bug #646074 reported by Pau Garcia Quiles
This bug affects 5 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

When you "Edit PPA dependencies", you are choosing the dependencies for all series. It should be possible to specify the dependencies for each series independently.

For instance, if I am backporting a package which requires Debhelper 7:

- I want "Ubuntu dependencies" to be "Backports (default dependencies and unsupported updates)" for Hardy because Debhelper 7 is only available from hardy-backports)

- but I want "Ubuntu dependencies" to be "Default (security dependencies and recommended updates)" for Jaunty, Karmic, Lucid and Maverick, which carry Debhelper 7 in the "Default" packageset.
