The debian kernel team will handle most stuff in the kernel-source package
itself, and i have arranged a powerpc pegasos box for simon horms, who should
be back in a week or two, and he will do the actual builds of the kernels. I
will help with the .config maintenance, as best i can, but all this should
really be automated, since the only thing needed is a rebuild in case a new
kernel-source is released.

I don't intent to do an upload with QA as kernel ackages are in deep freeze,
and affect d-i and stuff.

Furthermore the maintainers are already marked as the kernel maintainer team,
so ...

No off to the airport, see you in two days or so ...
