that means that all packages must have completed the FHS transition. There
are currently 813 packages (including non-free and non-US) with a
Standards-Version < 3.0.0 . If want to change this you'll have to start

It is only required for packages with a Standards-Version >= 3.1.0 . There
are currently 813 packages with a Standards-Version < 3.0.0 and 1190
packages with a Standards-Version 3.0.x - and many people upload even the
initial release of a package with a Standards-Version 3.0.0... If you want
to force all packages using build dependencies you'll have to file at
about 2000 RC bugs...

unstable has the environment for kernel 2.4. You can't simply use a
self-compiled 2.4-kernel in potato.
A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a
"Yes" merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.
