There are 2.6.32-rc's around as well, but not on Debian.
Why should there not be current stable kernel version on Debian?
I always compile my own. Question is that if Debian is keeping it back, is it
Version 2.6.31 is available in "experimental". You can use
'kernel-package' with Debian kernel sources from "unstable" or
"experimental", or even with upstream source from tarballs or git.
My impression is that the kernel team considers 2.6.31 to have been a
bit buggier than usual, but they are feeling better about 2.6.32 and
plan to use it for Squeeze (when released).
I was using the kernel team's test-package server, kernel-archive
.buildserver.net, but that machine bit the dust with no known ETA for
restoring it to life. I have since moved on to keeping my own upstream
git repository and building test kernels from there.
