Default Bug#485182: Please include the ip_set.ko module in the standard kernel

Package: kernel
Severity: wishlist

I maintain several VPN servers (running etch) which use ip sets to manage
the user groups. It would be quite convenient to have ip_set.ko included
in the kernel, since at the current time, we have to recompile the
kernel for each update. Across multiple servers, this is quite
time-consuming. Please include this module in the stock kernel, if
possible for the next Etch kernel as that is what our production servers
are running.

There is no ip_set.ko in the standard kernel.

[This request is about the kernel module from ipset.netfilter.org]

External modules are not integrated into the regular Debian kernel
package, see http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernelPatchAcceptanceGuidelines

For ipset, you should package the kernel-related part of ipset into
a ipset-modules package and integrate the build into
the linux-modules-extra-2.6 meta package, so that it is automatically
build for all archs, see
http://packages.qa.debian.org/l/linux-modules-extra-2.6.html

I'm retitling this to a packaging request on the wnpp meta package.

Cheers,
Moritz
