Great news. But uploading a *.deb package without source?? I think this will
be rejected!? And you mean uploading to unstable, not to experimental?

And in the past, we have had one kernel-source with additionel patches for
not fully supported architectures (as m68k). I think this will be similary for
linux-2.2 - i386, alpha and powerpc are fully integrated, but arm and m68k
won't (don't know it for sparc and mips). 

But uploading 2.1 kernel images will help. Thanks for the info.
