As for 2), I'd like to hear suggestions.
With only so much time to
devote to supporting the Factory kernel, we'll need to find a balance
between convenience for users and bugs actually getting fixed. We have
options between supporting every release (which I would actively
fight) and dropping support for any previous kernel as soon as a new
one is added to the repository. I've added some interested parties to
the CC list, but I'd like to hear from anyone with an opinion.
IMO having bugreportes reproduce with the latest stable kernel is not
asking too much. The packages are conveniently available.
Right. But now one thing came to my mind: is there any backup of the
old released (kernel) packages? For the released products in the
past, we keep every updated package. But with a rolling release...?
Having the old packages is often really helpful for debugging, it can
narrow down the range.
I've been running a script to keep an archive of the kernels built in
the internal buildservice for some time. I just need to export it
somehow at least internally. But if the buildservice could do it for the
Factory packages, that would be great as well.
