kernel fun again
fun with a new kernel again. for some value of "fun". I tried 2.6.38-rc6-686 (from experimental), & I quickly hit 2 regression: good news: at least the DPMS problems on my laptop are solved with 2.6.38. – but on my desktop machines I have some weird artifacts on my screen.

RC bugs 2011/03 - 2011/07
squeeze is released but this doesn't mean the end of the ordinary RC bug; old ones are still around, & new ones keep floating in. as a short reminder to take the occasional look at the RC bug list I'm again posting what I've done in the last weeks. as you can see no NMUs but only work on packages I have a relation to, & often only uploading packages prepared by others (yeah teamwork!).

merci !
now that we have released squeeze, I'd like to say thanks to the release team. I've really enjoyed the cooperation in the past months. the people I had the most contact with were mehdi & also adam, & they were always very quick, very friendly, & very cooperative when I had some requests. merci beaucoup, & I hope you continue your good work!
