What is the status of Debian/kFreeBSD? One place I got the impression it was using the Debian Installer, another place that it was a FreeBSD-style install. Are the Debian configuration tools ported? I have some hardware issues with the Linux kernel, which are not with the FreeBSD kernel, so it seems like an appealing solution, if I can get what I have come to expect as a regular desktop user of Slackware and Debian.

Dear kFreeBSD porters, dear kFreeBSD users,
the Release Team is currently wondering if it makes sense to release with kFreeBSD as a regular stable architecture with squeeze. It might be that it is not yet up to the standards of a regular Debian release as it might not contain everything that’s expected by users.
So, what do you think is still missing? What would we need to communicate as a disclaimer to the users if releasing kFreeBSD in this state?
If it’s not entirely up to our standards, would a separate suite, like it has been done in the past for sarge-amd64 and etch-m68k, help having some sort of release that can be updated independently from the main stable release? Such a suite could also be useful to land larger changes than normally allowed for stable.
Or do you think we should skip this release? (But keep it in testing, of course.)
Kind regards, Philipp Kern
