Default Please unblock linux-2.6/2.6.26-11, linux-modules-extra-2.6/2.6.26-5, redhat-cluster/2.20081102-1

Hi folks

Please unblock linux-2.6/2.6.26-11. It introduces another stable update
and fixes several other problems.

Please unblock linux-modules-extra-2.6/2.6.26-5. It is a schedules
rebuild to introduce new images and build against new modules sources.

Please unblock redhat-cluster/2.20081102-1. It is necessary to have
working modules on 2.6.26. This is "source" for l-m-e-2.6.

Bastian

Unblocked, will migrate when it ages.

I already unblocked it on 2008-11-19, and I already told you on IRC that
it can't migrate because it's uninstallable:

trying: linux-modules-extra-2.6
skipped: linux-modules-extra-2.6 (0 <- 14)
got: 11+0: i-0:a-0:a-11
* amd64: aufs-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, btrfs-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, drbd8-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, iscsitarget-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, loop-aes-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, +lzma-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, nilfs2-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, redhat-cluster-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, speakup-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, squashfs-modules-2.6-xen-amd64, tp-smapi-+modules-2.6-xen-amd64

I'm very unhappy about this. It's a new upstream version with quite a
lot of changes AFAICS.

I realize what the problem is: l-m-e-2.6 uses -source packages from
unstable to build the modules; if then the modules migrate but the
-source package does not, and we release, we have a license compliance
problem, right?

In a way, -source packages can be considered as a kind of "libraries"
during the freeze: they prevent the ability of other packages to migrate.
We want a better handling of libraries during the freeze for squeeze;
I've made a note that -source packages could use the same mechanisms.

This doesn't solve the current problem, though.

Then force it. This is going to be fixed by a new linux-latest upload.

Sure. The problem is not new. I tried to start a discussion[1], but
noone was interrested. So for now you have no other possibility.
