Fwd: Old kernels used for sparc daily builds
You used to build the sparc daily images for d-i. But these images are
no longer built since June. Are you still intending to provide daily

This is a Debian installation CDROM, built on 20101110-15:27.
jurij@droopy:~$ strings /mnt/iso/boot/sparc64 | grep 'Linux version'
Linux version 2.6.32-5-sparc64 (Debian 2.6.32-15) (firstname.lastname@example.org) (gcc version 4.3.5 (Debian 4.3.5-1) ) #1 Tue Jun 1 06:56:43 UTC 2010
It would be great to fix it as testing the images with such an old
kernel is meaningless (for example, it hangs on my workstation early
