I have had problems with a change of ISP and now I am finally back.
I released, time ago, a more recent compilation, that you can find here
[0]. I don't think Andreas has released anything new since this mail yet.

If you are interested we can work together.
I would like to submit to you what I thought after this [0] approach: in
sarge, as well as in woody, you can find 2 official kernels.
The last release (mine one, which is actually unofficial) was made for the
2.6.x kernel, while it can not be used for 2.4.x.
Do you think it can be a good idea to create a "virtual pkg" or a similar
"escamotage" in order to use the same pkg but when you use the 2.4 kernel
you then use (let's say) iproute-2.4 binary, otherwise if you use 2.6 kernel the
other binary (on the same installation and system!) the (let's say)
iproute-2.6 binary.
The idea is similar to the init-mod for the 2.4 and 2.6 kernel.

Let me know what you think and if it is feasible.
