The best list is debian-boot@lists.debian.org. The main problem we are
facing is our official 2.2.x kernels are huge, and there's no way to put
the kernel and the root.bin image on a single floppy. The proposed
solution is building a modularized kernel, and loading the needed modules
using an initrd image, but AFAICT, there's nobody working on that.
