Re: Packages to go in 1.3.1r3 (Was: Debian Releases )
I am in the process of releasing a version of kernel-package
that I think is stable (the only thing people have come up with are a
typo in a README file, and to preserve the time stamp of files during
The only problem with including this in stable is that I
explicitly depend on dpkg-dev (>= 188.8.131.52), since earlier versions
have the dpkg-gencontrol bug.
Even though the newer kernel packages have some nice features,
and do fix one major bug (the text files in /lib/modules/* issue), as
long as we do not also upload a fixed version of dpkg-dev, there is
no point in moving kernel-package to stable, since it would still be
impossible to compile kernel-image packages.
