Release notes/nits

1. Kernel-headers-2.0.27_1.0.deb appears as the whole file in both
rex/binary-all and rex/binary-i386, while the kernel-source is provided as
a symlink in rex/binary-i386. Is there some reason that a symlink can not
be used for the headers package as well?
BTW, why is it that the kernel source is provided as a .deb package file
instead of being in the source section with the rest of the source
packages? This is still confusing to some users and puts source files into
the binary distribution unnecessarily.

2. Last release there were some problems with dselect being inflexible
about certain paths-to-sections for accessing the distribution. Memory
says this had to do with a desired stable/unstable link that was not
always available. I currently have a contrib and a rex tree, containing
all the needed paths just as they appear on master. The question is, do I
need any other path heads to satisfy dselect and the installation process?
