On a slightly separate but related note, I'm uploading
user-mode-linux_2.6.25-2 now to fix a build error on x84_64.

Uml 2.6.25 is not in testing yet (my fault, didn't have time to get on
top of that recently) so I was wondering what are the plans for
Are you going to remove it from unstable and eventually realize the
"backup plan" via tpu uploads?

The current version in testing is unmaintainable as it build-depends on
linux-source-2.6.24 which is not available anymore and it doesn't make
any sense to realease it in lenny. On the other hand what is the
scenario if 2.6.25 goes missing in unstable while uml is not in testing
I hope I've been able to explain my worries...

PS: once uml 2.6.25 is in testing I'll be able to upload 2.6.26 to stay
in sync with the current kernel sources.
