Well, if you mean the process of releasing new versions of boot-floppies,
lets just say it's not nearly as easy as it should be.  I can actually
build the whole thing (given a 20MB slice of the debian archive) 
for x86, *excepting* the tecra kernels!  The tecra kernels are not 
officially part of the distribution so I have no good way to build them.

Porters have similar problems; for instance, the patched kernel 2.2.1 for
the Debian/sparc Sun4u architectures is also not available anywhere.

This is a critical issue for me -- it really must be resolved for potato.
Just venting... but we should be able to find a way to ship the all
the kernels for all the arches in an efficient manner.
