Bug Description
"Now, compile the kernel: fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=custom.1.0 kernel_image."
Kernel build failed with make[2] error --first character must be a digit. Please correct to read 'Now, compile the kernel: fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --revision=1.0.custom kernel_image'. Otherwise my kernel build was a success. Thanks for the info and for your attention to this request and for Ubuntu in general.

  * Merge from Debian unstable; LP: #887663.
    - fixes a wrong init script name for dhcpd. LP: #666726.
    - fixes a typo in the table of memory requirements. LP: #1030336.
    - drops obsolete mention of 2.6 kernels in keyboard preseeding.
      LP: #1000354.
    - fixes wrong make-kpkg example invocation. LP: #1019906.

  * Remaining changes:
    - Extensive (although possibly incomplete) Ubuntu branding, adjustments
      for our mirror layout, etc.
    - Build only English (for now, until we figure out how to avoid trashing
      translations quite so badly with Ubuntu branding etc.).
    - Drop build-dependency on poxml for now, since we don't ship any
    - Add "Ubuntu and Debian" and "What is Ubuntu?" section, text borrowed
      from the Ubuntu web site. Disable the "What is Debian GNU/Linux?"
    - Build only Ubuntu architectures (amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, powerpc,
      ppc64el, s390x).
    - Direct installation reports to ubuntu-users for now.
    - Document mounting /sys in various places.
    - Update chroot-install guide for language packs; add
      a bit more advice about installing grub.
    - Document our root password and sudo arrangements.
    - Adjust various memory and disk space requirements. Talk about the
      default Ubuntu desktop and Ubuntu tasks rather than Debian tasks.
    - Document network-console/authorized_keys_url feature
    - Document mirror/udeb/components.
    - Document scheme for preseeding the use of
    - Document how to override the weak password check.

    - Document pkgsel/update-policy.
    - Document pkgsel/updatedb.
    - Document apt-setup/security_path.
    - Disable documentation of win32-loader.
    - Document netboot-style USB images. Still mention the hd-media images,
      but they're downplayed since many USB sticks are too small for a full
      Ubuntu ISO image.
    - Retain delta for commented-out OldWorld Mac support because it's easier
      than reverting it; but at this point OldWorld Macs will almost
      certainly never be supported in Ubuntu or Debian.
    - Remove comments about automatic installation methods that have been
      removed from Ubuntu.
    - Document Kickstart installations.
    - Unset supports-floppy-boot for all our architectures.
