Bug Description

I would like to use backportpackage with "testing" and "unstable".

% backportpackage -s testing -d lucid -u ppa:blueyed tpb
backportpackage: Error: Release 'testing' is unknown in 'Debian'.

The error comes from ubuntutools/lp/lpapicache.py - it looks like
the Launchpad API does not know about these names.

  [ Stefano Rivera ]
  * syncpackage, backportpackage, sponsor-patch: Use -nc when building source
    packages. Avoids needing build-deps on the build machine.
  * sponsor-patch:
    - Determine the task from the UDD branch.
    - Support syncs of new packages.
    - Support syncs from a non-default series (LP: #931644)
    - Check for dependencies that the package doesn't Depend on. Recommend
      dput, lintian, patch, quilt. (LP: #846385)
  * Re-add dgetlp. Still needed for downloading source packages from +queue.
    (LP: #919805)
  * pbuilder-dist:
    - Export DISTRIBUTION and ARCHITECTURE as well as DIST and ARCH. Thanks
      Alessio Treglia. (Closes: #659060, LP: #423609)
    - Pass DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS through (LP: #685786)
  * reverse-depends: Now that Debian is supported server-side:
    - Convert Debian release aliases to codenames.
    - Default to the devel release of the vendor distribution.
    - Provide transitional reverse-build-depends wrapper to help users
      discover reverse-depends. (LP: #910420)
  * backportpackage: Map Debian release aliases to codenames (LP: #918231)

  [ Evan Broder]
  * sponsor-patch, requestsync, syncpackage: Add a config variable for -k
    arguments.
