please put back the 2.6.15 kernel package i need to
boot my old powerbook which i use everyday for
business, that is until a newer kernel has been
shown to work.(and include it on the installation
cd with initrd for the installer !)

also please put back the deleted pcmcia support,
and do not delete any more of it. even my new world
mac needs it as i do not have $100 to spare for
an airport card, and my older one won't take it 
in any case.

if you want more active developers in the port,
you have to support people from less well advantaged
situations, where most of the new talent is coming
from these years. 

never mind the percentages, a lot of people are
turned off by the consumer trade but there is a 
lot of industrial significance for the powerpc.

either debian is inclusive and values oriented or
it is not. but if it is not it should not be
advertising as so on its websites.
