Re: Formal request for review: [Sam Hartman <firstname.lastname@example.org>] Referring what kernel-images to build to the technical committee?
Ok, I think I've digested the material enough to ask for suggestions:
 Sam listed a number of tradeoffs. Before we can make intelligent
decisions about tradeoffs, we're going to need some measurements of the
costs and the benefits.
Measurements themselves will require some significant resources [or
maybe we can find that someone else has already done the relevant work].
 Sam also talked about "a global direction". Right now, debian is an
ad-hoc mix of binary and source packages (with some source packages being
in deb form because of the limitations of our "dependency mechanisms").
We're also seeing limitations [mostly potential but some quite real]
of our archive architecture and dependency architecture. Maybe it's
time to sit down and lay out a strategy for where we're going.
I'm interested in how the rest of you see the problems, and the implied
requirements. [Ok, I think I've a pretty good idea of how Herbert Xu
and Sam Hartman think -- I'm looking for other viewpoints.]
