For 3.0 we use reprepro in the backend. That keeps the tags of unmodified packages. For modified packages, I fixed debderiver to get the tags from Squeeze and supply them as an override to reprepro (see bug #39043).

2.0 will soon be oldstable, so I'm not going to put effort into fixing this in Builder.
