I suspect your approach in making d-i handle 2.6 kernels is not the
best nor the most efficient way.  Duplicating the d-i CVS, and trying
to fork the packages, instead of supplying patches to the current d-i
CVS, seem like a inefficient approach.

I believe you should consider adding hooks and generic solutions to
the official d-i instead of trying to replicate what is being done in
the official d-i.

I told you this on IRC earlier, but just wanted to repeat it here on
the mailing list, to make sure you take it into account.
