Looks like someone's already gotten to this one?  I only see this in
stable now.

I'm hoping at least one of these can be removed, since at least amiga
is supposed to be supported under 2.4.

It seems reasonable to remove all of the above from the archive

I see that kernel-image-2.4.21-1-i386 is already gone from unstable, and
would be removed from testing as well except:

  trying: -kernel-image-2.4.21-1-i386
  skipped: -kernel-image-2.4.21-1-i386 (2 <- 163)
      got: 18+0: a-3:a-3:h-4:i-8
      * i386: linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-5-386, linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-5-586tsc, linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-5-686, linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-5-686-smp, linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-5-k6, linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-5-k7, linux-wlan-ng-modules-2.4.21-5-k7-smp

An ftpmaster will need to get these troublesome binary packages out of
the way.

This one's also gone from testing and unstable.

These look like they're all current.

There is a kernel-image-2.6.5-alpha package in unstable which should
replace this one in testing in due course (this appears to be roughly 10
days out from today).

I don't see a kernel-image-2.6.5-ia64 in unstable yet, however.

I'll follow up with the maintainers of those packages that appear to be
ready to go, and file bugs against ftp.debian.org after that if there
are no objections.
