Being one who has pushed in the past for trying to get slink targeted at 2.1.x and 2.2.x, I have to agree with Joseph here, its /WAY/ too late, now, I am all for filing the severity important bugs against packages which break with it, but the maintainer and release manager should have every right to downgrade the bug to wishlist status.. (If its very easy to do without breaking freeze then great, if its not then we fix it in potato and get slink stable with the kernel its shipped with) > > I have heard earlier that we still do not have 2.0.36 images and we have > agreed that we would use them for slink.

Yes, potato is without a doubt the space for the next step of big upgrades, to the point that I'd even suggest that people who don't know how to recover a majorly damaged system avoid it once we get started.. :/ (2.2.x kernels, glibc 2.1, perl -> perl5.005 (And yes, I am going to push for the rename and sticking with the upstream design changes), etc..) > > > BTW, it's nice to know there are more ideas for kernel features on the > > horizon.
