Release libabsl-dev and libabsl20200225 into focal?

Asked by Tyler Weaver

As far as I can tell all the dependencies of these two packages are already released into focal and these packages are released for groovy. I would really like to use them in focal. Is there some way I could help these packages be released into focal?

Thank you for the response. The only reason I thought it might be possible is this package was never released into focal so this is not an upgrade of the version.

Everything what is true for version upgrades also applies to software that has not been published for a certain Ubuntu release.
You can try creating a request to backport the version from impish to focal, but I am not optimistic that this would quickly be done.

Can you help with this problem?
