This sync request is unnecessary. 1) We're not in DebianImportFreeze yet (, 2) the package in Lucid is unmodified.

Anyway: ACKed.

Yes, I know that is unnecessary. So, someone can explain me why this package is not sync since 27 Nov 2008 ? :)

indeed, this is a fix for a bug that appears in Karmic that has been open for some weeks now.

    along with the previous one, moves us to a cleaner state.

  * [34fa772]: Rework handling of XEN packages

    So far, kernel-package would pay special attention to the
    configuration files that enabled XEN hypervisor/guest images, mangling
    the package name, and changing the file paths where the images were
    dumped. This caused no end of confusion to third party tools, and also
    surprised people when packages with different names had unexpected
    file conflicts. With dpkg defaulting to --force-overwrite that could
    be catastrophic. This is because a normal kernel image, a XenU or a
    Xen0 image, all looked for modules in /lib/modules/$version, and would

    With this commit, kernel-package stops paying attention to the XEN
    configuration hints in the config, producing a normal kernel image.

    version, they will have to do what people wanting to run kernels witht
    he same version with differing configurations have always had to do:
