I think there's still a Xen regression (since 2.6.32-31) to be fixed.

Ah, okay; thanks for the update. Let's hold off with the push to
stable-updates for now then.

Regards,

Adam

I'm assuming that's #621072, which it looks like a resolution has been
found for?

Are there any other outstanding fixes or other blockers for a 2.6.32-34
upload? The approximate two-monthly schedule for stable point releases
means that we should be aiming for 6.0.2 to be around the end of May, so
it would be good to try and get a finalised kernel for that in the
not-too-distant future.

(fwiw, the next lenny point release - 5.0.9 - shouldn't be too far
behind; we need to poke relevant people but I'm working on an estimated
schedule of around mid-June).

Regards,

Adam

Let's upload what we have now for 2.6.32-34. I intend to backport some
new hardware support but we can put that in 2.6.32-35.

There are some (minor, AFAIK) security fixes pending.

Ben.

I've just flagged -34 for acceptance at the next dinstall; thanks for
the upload.
