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

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.
