There's something I've been pondering for a while, along with some
other folks - it might be useful to do a "jessie and a half" release,
similarly to what we did in the etch days. That's *basically* just
like a normal jessie release, but with a few key updates:
* backports kernel
That's a given.
Does that mean "kernel from backports"? How would we keep that working
given that backports keeps changing? Would we copy the kernel at the
time into a special suite? How would updates work?
That is to mean: I can see how this would work as a sort of continuously
built thing whenever the kernel in backports changes and the supporting
d-i changes are committed. But in the terms of a release seems to be a
* rebuilt d-i to match that kernel
You know there are patches around for that.
* X drivers
I don't see backports for them.
Would it also mean X proper or "just" drivers?
