I totally agree. I don't believe that anyone expects you to take on the
responsibility for each distribution-specific flavour either. At least
I hope not. :-)

That's another topic, but I'll bite: Using out-of-debian
kernel patches *on* debian kernels gives me feelings of
uncertainty an reluctance. On the other hand there's that
warm, fuzzy feeling when I decide to install and try any
kernel-patch-* debian package which I know, most of the
time, applies in a smoothless and transparent manner.

I have full confidence in Olas judgement and work as a
package maintainer... Although I agree that actually
testing packages of this kind before uploading them can
at times like these save yet another bug report. ;-)

(Oh, and thanks all for the good and quick feedback!)
