I totally agree and have prepared the next revision already.

I'd be glad if you could go through all accepted kernel packages and
ensure that including them won't break dependencies and existing

An up-to-date version is at <http://master.debian.org/~joey/3.0r2/>.

Append "accept/" to the URL to see the plain files for kernel-foo.

These are my biggest worries with this update.

It would also be a good idea to skim through the list of rejected
packages to see if too many packages are thrown away.

Since I've already worked on this issue for a week, you aren't.
