ftp.debian.org: Please remove those (renamed) hppa 2.6.12 kernels from the archive ...

Package: ftp.debian.org
Severity: important

Hi, the following packages :

# out of date on hppa: linux-headers-2.6-32, linux-headers-2.6-32-smp,
# linux-headers-2.6-64, linux-headers-2.6-64-smp, linux-headers-2.6.12-1-32,
# linux-headers-2.6.12-1-32-smp, linux-headers-2.6.12-1-64,
# linux-headers-2.6.12-1-64-smp, linux-image-2.6-32, linux-image-2.6-32-smp,
# linux-image-2.6-64, linux-image-2.6-64-smp, linux-image-2.6.12-1-32,
# linux-image-2.6.12-1-32-smp, linux-image-2.6.12-1-64,
# linux-image-2.6.12-1-64-smp, linux-image-32, linux-image-32-smp,
# linux-image-64, linux-image-64-smp (from 2.6.12-5)

which are part of the 2.6.12-5 linux source package, have been replaced with
new non-generic flavour names (32 -> hppa32 and so on), and thus should be
removed from the archive. I understand from Steve's message that this is
blocking the testing migration of linux-2.6 2.6.12-6, altough i am a bit
confused as to why this is, since those packages are not yet in testing, so i
am fully baffled about this.

Anyway, could you get those packages out of the archive ASAP, so that
linux-2.6 2.6.12-6 can go to testing, and we are free to upload linux-2.6
2.6.13-1 to sid. This is also an important step for d-i, as we cannot upgrade
d-i from using those unsupported kernels it is using now, without having
2.6.12 kernels in etch.

Also, this would also allow us to remove all remnant of previous 2.6 kernels
from etch and sid, namely any remains of the 2.6.8 and 2.6.11 kernels, please
help us to get ride of them as soon as possible, as they are fully unsuported.
