It would be possible for me if I get ~2 weeks notice before a Xenomai
release to already do _before_ the Xenomai release what I would normally
do _afterwards_ anyway (for Debian). Gilles, is this possible?

But keep in mind that from time to time Debian does intermitted
revisions and it would be necessary to synchronize with
Much duplicated work that I would like to prevent.

Looks like this feature is more popular than I was thinking, so I'll try
my best.

BTW: There is the patch tracker at

(see down on the right)

which could be used for automating or helping with sync with incremental
Debian revisions?

Gilles? Philippe?

I remember having updated one of those pages, but the current version
quite deviated. Hope everything works fine?
