* Changes to Debian build tools (pbuilder, sbuild, piuparts, etc..)
to support all of the items in your list.
* Add a field which allows a package to be cross buildable (that
might be delayed until we gain support for all that in Debian)
* Regarding kernels...
We could easily setup an autobuilder which cross compiles kernels
and place the packages into emdebian.org repository, but we need to
agree what we want to support, probably a cross built version of
Debian kernel package with extra configs they do not enable? Do we
want to build out of mainline kernels? Should we provide security
fixes on those out of mainline tree kernels? Or should we just build
kernel versions which are marked as long term support (2..6.32,2.6.37)
and/or long term support for embedded (2.6.35)?
