I intend to upload 2.4.27-10 source and i386 today.
These are currently at: http://debian.vergenet.net/testing/
Turns out I am doing the PPC build too, hopefully today,
if not by the end of the week.
I am currently looking at making sure everything from the 22.214.171.124
patch makes it back into 2.6.8. There seem to be a handful of
patches needed. I have this working localy and hope to clean
it up and get it into SVN soon. Real soon.
