Package: linux-2.6
Severity: wishlist

Maybe the linux-image packages could install a cron.daily script
that compared the currently installed version to /proc/version and
sent an e-mail to root in case there's a mismatch, which most likely
means that a new kernel exists, but the machine has not been
rebooted. Extra bonus for making this debconf configurable. ;)

Ack. Closing the bug.
