Well, I hope I could upload it next monday... At least on my ftp site to allow
some of you do a trial.
BTW, how should I commit my patches ? Either I completely missed the point
about getting the "adam-boot-floppies_2-1_branch" branch or my last fixes
(dated from 99/04/13) about 2.2 kernel support were not put in the tree.
I have had to refix them in my current copy of the tree :-((
More on this topic: how do you manage to bring some fixes from your branch to
the main trunk ? Is there any magic cvs command ?

I will check it before uploading it.

Where can I get these kernel-images ? (I'm not connected to the net by the
time I write this email so I cannot check if it sits in potato or not, sorry).

I'm using xdm, so I don't have this problem either.
Could just well documenting it in the release notes be sufficient ?

Oops, forgot it.
I downloaded both silo 0.8.5-4 & 0.8.6-1 from ftp.prosa.it few hours ago, but
which one should I use ? Which one will be put in 2.1r3 anyway ?
