OK, I'll do these Monday.

Hmm, difficult I think; on alpha each subarchitecture needs its own
kernel image, at least with 2.0 kernels (2.2 kernels have a "generic"
type for alpha finally).  I expect most people build their own kernels
anyway... And many have already a 2.2 kernel (I did, even in slink
times). Maybe a generic 2.2 kernel image for alpha? I think the
importance of the "misc important fixes" should be looked at, possibly
this is more trouble than it's worth...

I've cc'ed the debian-alpha list about this, maybe others have their
opinions on this?
