[jcrigby 1 Feb 2012] modified the debian/rules so debuild -S builds identical tar files on subsequent builds but recipe builds apparently still produce different tarfiles.
[jcrigby 2 Feb 2012] the problem is the same we have seen before the recipe creates a debian/changelog but the debian/rules clean target overwrites it with one from debian.linaro. This explains the problem we have always had with the kernel recipe version string not working.
[jcrigby 3 Feb 2012] Finished original WIs and discovered a couple more that need to be done.
[jcrigby 15 Feb 2012] Shared header fix has been pushed. The flavour header package for lt kernels
now has all the headers and it no longer depends on the common headers. The kernel-wedge fix for
precise did not work so changing that back to TODO.
[jcrigby 21 Feb 2012] Still need to fix or workaround the kernel-wedge error.
[rsalveti, 22 Feb 2012] John, please create a bug for the kernel-wedge error and close down the blueprint, as the most important WIs are marked as DONE already.
[jcrigby, 22 Feb 2012] Created bug #938907 for the kernel-wedge issue.

Headline: Packaged Kernel CI now publishes both 3.1 and 3.2 kernels at the Kernel PPA, for both Oneiric and Precise.
Acceptance: All recipes building without conflicts between source package. 3.1 and 3.2 enabled at the same PPA. Packages available at the Kernel PPA.
