12UT of the announced day would be late, with some luck..
depends on the uploader.

we prefer to have splitted up patches as they are tradionaly easier to
push upstream. easier to drop the applied one and only parts needs rediff
on newer upstream.
as port maintainer you are free to have your own workflow.
i'm quite happy that vanilla 2.6 builds out of the box for m68k,
hope the merge continues this way :)
this 2.6.15 should go to testing, will add the closure of the generic
initramfs bug as things sort out.
