Package: kernel-source-2.6.11
Version: 2.6.11-7
Severity: wishlist

I wanted to rebuild a kernel-image package starting with the same
.config in the official Debian packages.  One way to do this is to
install the kernel-image package, which contains it in /boot/config-XXX,
but it's annoying to install a huge kernel-image package you're just
going to replace.  It took me a good while to notice that the .config
file is also in the kernel-headers package (obvious in retrospect), in
/usr/src/kernel-headers-XXX/.config.  That's also a big download for
just that file, though I already happened to have it installed.
Finally, I discovered that the kernel-image _source_ package is
(contrary to intuition) a tiny little thing containing little other than
the .configs.

I would suggest either copying the .configs into the kernel-source
package, or putting clear documentation into the kernel-source package,
say in README.Debian:

    If you want to start with the same kernel .config used in the
    official Debian kernel-image package, get it from the _source_
    package for the relevant kernel-image (don't worry, it's a small
    download).

BTW, the kernel-headers-2.6.11-1 package contains
/usr/share/doc/kernel-headers-2.6.11-1/config-2.6.11-1.gz matching
/usr/src/kernel-headers-2.6.11-1/.config; however the
kernel-headers-2.6.11-1-686 contains no such file in /usr/share/doc.  Is
that intentional?
