Re: Debian Bug#20445 disagree

OK, I have no problem with taking my packages that depend on a development
kernel, i.e. 2.1.x, out of Hamm and place them in unstable. However,
somebody with the requiered authority must make it official and all other
maintainers in the same situtation must do the same thing with their packages.

Of course, consensus must be reached first, I think.
