Re: de-supporting the 1.2 kernel

I would like Debian to be cautious and not fall to the urge to have the 
latest features, which sometimes are not that well tested. I think a 
distribution needs to be somewhat stable.

Look at what Alan Cox said in linux-kernel:

He is not the only one having problems with this kernel. Many other 
people is saying the same thing. It clearly is not ready for consuming.

I _definitely_ would not like to have 1.3.58 as the standard Debian kernel 
after that comment.
