Please do not advertise testing as a release which is ready for
users.  (Yes, I admit I use testing in the way you describe - but
*I* know what I'm doing.)

But is not that big problem to install two kernels? One, the default Lenny kernel and an RT kernel from testing?

To get some progress here, I'm searching for a person who wants and is capable in filing a wishlist bug (with a patch vs. the package linux-2.6

thanks in advance,
