Bug#329770: ITP: kern2deb -- Convert RedHat kernel-VER.src.rpm to a Debian package

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Russell Stuart <russell-debian@stuart.id.au>

* Package name    : kern2deb
  Version         : 1.1
  Upstream Author : Russell Stuart <russell-debian@stuart.id.au>
* URL             : http://www.stuart.id.au/russell/files/debian/sarge/kern2deb/
* License         : GPL
  Description     : Convert RedHat kernel-VER.src.rpm to a Debian package

Convert a Red Hat kernel source rpm (eg kernel-2.4.21-20.EL.src.rpm)
into Debian kernel source and binary packages (eg
kernel-source-2.4.21.redhat_2.4.21.redhat.20.el.deb and friends).
If Debian has released the same kernel version a kernel-patch-redhat
can also be generated.  The resulting packages can be installed,
compiled, patched using the standard Debian tools, just like any
other Debian kernel package.

This package has already been created.  I am after a sponsor.
Examples of its output can be found here:


-- System Information:
