I think andy-tracking should be seen as a "stable, well tested"
branch. I am sure it is a good idea to do small incremental bug fixes
to this branch.

I have tested 2.6.32 and reported bugs [1]. My impression is that
while it may run d-i it is still behind andy-tracking in terms of
stability and features. Many of the features are already in SHR but
are not accepted by git.openmoko.org. Should we start cherry-picking
these patches from SHR? As I understood it, we won't get things like
USB host support without these patches.

Put it another way: I am eager to test and report bugs for a branch
that aims to provide same features as andy-tracking
currently. However, if the goal is to run d-i and nothing more then I
don't have very high motivation for testing.

So, is the primary goal to get a kernel finally to Debian or to have a
2.6.32 kernel for openmoko that supports mostly the same features as
andy-tracking did? I can understand both goals very well but they
should be spelt out clearly.
