Description Dan Horák 2009-12-17 12:22:54 UTC
Spec URL:

flash-kernel is a script which will put the kernel and initramfs in the boot
location of embedded devices that don't load the kernel and initramfs directly
from /boot. flash-kernel supports devices that boot from flash memory
(hence the name) as well as some devices that require a special boot image
on the disk.

Just looking at ancient review tickets.

This one is a bit weird; is there no real upstream besides the debian package?  I guess they don't have the same rule about not doing upstream development as Fedora does.

Also, the current version seems to be 2.36; 2.27 is no longer available for download.
