Yes -- but inherent in PCMCIA is very tight coupling between the
kernel config and the pcmcia config.  In fact, in 2.4.x, PCMCIA ships
with the kernel so the pcmcia-modules-* package will probably go away.

I don't understand --- why is there any reason *not* to upload the
kernel-image-2.2.14-compact images to potato *now*?  I don't think
there is any reason.  As for "being tested" -- it will be tested far
more once you have uploaded it to the standard place (Incoming).

So please upload proper 2.2.14-compact pkgs if at all possible.
