Debian pushes development of kFreeBSD port

date:Oct. 7, 2009

The Debian Release Team is pleased to announce that it sees the port of
the Debian system to the FreeBSD kernel fit to be handeld equal with the
other release ports.  The upcoming release codenamed ‘Squeeze’ is
planned to be the first Debian distribution to be released with Linux
and FreeBSD kernels.

The kFreeBSD architectures for the AMD64/Intel EM64T and i386 processor
architectures are now release architectures.  Severe bugs on these
architectures will be considered release critical the same way as bugs
on other architectures like armel or i386 are.  If a particular package
does not build or work properly on such an architecture this problem is
considered release-critical.
