IMHO putting vserver patch into unstable isn't good seen from a production
environment pov.

The ideal solution to me would be to use the official debianized 2.6.10 from
unstable and backport this to testing release (including the Debian patches
if possible) with the newest 1.9.4 vserver patch.


Make it possible to apply the newest vserver patch to current 2.6 kernel in
Debian testing.

This would fit as a good base for a production environment since you get
vserver bugs out of the way and get newest features. The latter is best I
think, but demands more work since it's probably more difficult to apply a
1.9.4 vserver patch on a 2.6.8 kernel (testings 2.6 kernel) - if possible at

Of course this would also have to be maintained by a cool kernel-source
debianizer, who sadly isn't me :(

But I don't know if you think this is a good idea.
