The ftp/archive management tools will cope with it just fine, and the BTS
will definitely handle it much better than a package rename. I would not
expect kernel-package to have any problems (since the final binary package
names remain the same, incl. the -ABI portion of the package name, only the
source version has changed), but if you need me to do some testing of this
for you to confirm it, I'd be happy to do so.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
