Yes, last rumors say that linux-2.2 came out short before christmas.

Oh, i can generate a kernel-image_2.1.125-1_powerpc.deb along with source
and dsc files and upload it to master, but will you and the other arch
maintainer agree with this??

The linux-cvs tree fits better for all architecturces then the 'normal' linus
tree. But anyway, i think start working on pre-linux-2.2 is a good thing. 
Xfree needs some work for framebuffers, new alternativly x11 setup for boot-floppies,
new config files for the kernel-package, ...

BTW: have we binaries for the bttv driver available (video/audio driver)?
