Following the various install attempts on IBM hardware documented in this
mailing list, for a given architecture, it is clear that we have been using
kernels of different origin. It appears to me that we would benefit from
having a kernel repository with pre-compiled kernels. I know how to compile
a kernel; however, I prefer to use pre-compiled kernels that have been
built by people that fully understand the requirements for which source
tree to choose, patches to apply, compiler versions to use, etc. This way
we are all working with a common set of kernels.

Does this sound like a reasonable request?

If so, could someone create the following URL:
with the following sub-directories:

Then add the following to each sub-directory:
