Got the feeling this is not the first time we are asked. This would add it.

Stefan - would you create a git repo for the meta package, much as we've
had in the past for Hardy? I find that being able to manage linux-meta
using an actual source code control mechanism to be quite handy. Don't
forget to add the Vcs-Git line in debian/control so that folks outside
the kernel team notice it is under some revision control. I've already
had at least one collision with Sott Remnant over LRM.

I surely could do, but IIRC for one of the last releases (Intrepid?) I was
beaten to not do it becauses it confuses the folks outside. But I surely am
open to get it done again.

It is a PITA dealing in source packages and debdiffs to makes changes like bug 345992.
