Already done, just not uploaded there.  I'll do so when I wake up.

Here is the list of things left to do, before uploading:

* Disable 2.4.29 patch generation.  This kernel source is not yet in

* Copy package descriptions from 1.2, and extend for 2.0.

* Verify sanity of xendomains init script, as far as debian policy is

* Generate pristine 2.6.10 source from debian kernel source, instead of
  requiring ../linux-2.6.10.tar.bz2 to exist.

* Allow for installation of xend(and friends) when not running a xen kernel.
  The code currently breaks badly if a system dual-boots.  Users are also
  prone to install a set of tool debs and the kernel in one run, before
  rebooting into the new kernel.

The above are all that is required for an upload to experimental.  I need to
do upgrade testing from 1.2 before I can upload to unstable, however.
