We now have:

kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.0.35
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.0.36
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.2.1
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.2.5
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.2.7
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.2.9
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.2.10
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.2.12

My suggestion would be:

kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.0.38
kernel-{doc,headers,image,source}-2.2.12

Can anybody provide arguements against just having two kernels?
