I'm a bit more positive although things are still moving slowly. There is 
now a new source package that provides the needed kernel meta packages 
waiting in NEW for testing-proposed-updates.

A further delay will be caused by the two major kernel security issues 
published this week which means a new linux-2.6.16 is needed. We will 
need to also update the kernel udebs after that.

I still intend to post a more detailed release plan when the kernel is 
ready to migrate. As the past month has shown, it is useless to do so 
before that time.
