    initial v1  
    1 The plan for the Ubuntu rolling distribution involves taking new kernels fairly often. I think they're waiting until the 3.x.1 stable release before pushing them, but there's still a good chance that the Linux OpenAFS module code won't have taken the update. 
     1The plan for the Ubuntu rolling distribution involves taking new kernels fairly often. I think they're waiting until the 3.x.1 stable release before pushing them, but there's still a small chance that the Linux OpenAFS module code won't have accounted for kernel API changes by then.

    3 We should automatically test that the kernel compiles fine. There are a couple of ways to do this, and I'm not sure what the best answer is.

    55One possible route is to set up an automatic build on our own hardware somewhere (probably the build server, for convenience) which grabs the latest proposed kernel headers from the kernel team's PPA, tries to compile OpenAFS via DKMS against them, and emails us if that fails. I believe there's a mechanism for filing the Ubuntu equivalent of an RC bug against the new kernel, which will block it from migrating until we close it with the fixed openafs-modules-dkms; we might be able to script automatically filing such a bug.
