I'm quite happy to upload new packages for etchnhalf, but I'm afraid
they'd have to be just that -- packages of a newer upstream.  The upstream
changes to support newer kernels are far too comprehensive for me to be
able to isolate them and apply them separately, and the result would be
poorly-tested and less stable than going to the current packages from
Debian testing.

So... I guess my question is, what is the policy for etchnhalf for
packages that involve kernel modules?  Is it fair game to upload a new
upstream version, unlike the normal stable release policies?
