You do seem to have a very short memory ring buffer, this discussion
to which you heavily particpated was held on this list 8 weeks ago,
check the archives:

http://www.google.com/search?q=%22No+more+kernel-source(code)%22&filter=0

There were about 300 mails in June about your decision to first rename
the package and then drop it.

There were arguments against your removal of this packages whose
validity remains unchanged still today (nothing has changed after
all).

As well as the fact that this should have been discussed before doing
so, and not start yet another social experiment ...

And if the arguments did not convince you back in June why did you
revive the package back then?

I guess repeating social experiments are non-determinstic as the
objects of your experimentation get weared off and present less
resistance, so you may just have a better chance of passing your thing
this time!
