The above document was last revised on August 4, 2012. I wouldn't classify
that as "really old". Perhaps you assumed that it is old because I
recommend using kernel-package, rather than "make deb-pkg" or some
other newer method. kernel-package has been around a while, yes. But I
recommend it for what I consider to be good reasons, which are explained
over time in the document. You are, of course, entitled to disagree with
my opinion. But it's not old. I make an effort to keep it up to date,
and suggestions are welcome.
