You mean we have to make binNMUs of glibc? Or will you make a new upload
which explicitly requests kernel-headers 2.4.0?

Right now I only see this in the pools: kernel-image-2.4.0-test11-i386
There isn't an official 2.4.0 source yet in the archive?
Besides, we could probably build kernel-images for 2.4 on m68k, but they do
not work so well yet (at least on my box the IDE driver is not yet working,
rendering the kernel useless for me). Do you want those in the archive? But
who cares, I even uploaded xfree4.0 now to make the archive happy...

How about using debian funds to pay that hardware? I only have one m68k
machine, I am not sure if I want to donate that one to you, I could not work
for m68k anymore then. 
Or maybe get it donated by somebody else, and not necessarily by a
developer, after all I am "donating" quite a lot already. IMHO.
