The "kernel-metapackage" section of the release notes includes this

For the more adventurous there is an easy way to compile your own custom kernel
on &debian;.  Install the <systemitem
role="package">kernel-package</systemitem> tool and read the documentation in

AFAIK kernel-package is mostly deprecated these days in favour of the upstream 'make deb-pkg' target. Maybe this should be dropped or updated?

(cc:ed to debian-kernel)

Perhaps it makes sense to also cc the maintainer of said package (the kernel team do not maintain nor use kernel-package for some time, which is *not* the same as the package being deprecated IMO).

Kind regards,
