Re: Grace period for kernel-source uploads

Quite on the contrary, with the current way of doing things we are continuously in a state with a skew between k-i versions on different arches. As Anders described, every arch maintainer builds the k-i against there own "arch-specific" k-s upload, which causes sync problems whenever a complete rebuild on all arches is required. I believe, that ideally k-i for _all_ arches should be rebuilt after every k-s upload, and Sven is working on a single source package for all k-i images to implement exactly that.

don't think so,
agreed with dillinger that current way works.

In the recent DPL campaign a lot of attention was focused on the lack of communication withing Debian. My proposal is one way to somewhat improve it within a kernel team, for what it's worth. If people insist on doing it the old way, fine with me.
