I'm not up on kernel building, I'm quite happy to add it to the list.

In terms of when to do new builds, mostly it'll be when there's a
reasonable amount of change or improvements that deem a new version be
cut. I'm gauging that at the moment mostly by the changes in the
Fedora 14 mass build but I'm open to when and how. If you feel there's
stuff that warrants a new build basically just poke me.

I'm hoping to have a chunk of the missing deps fixed by the end of the
week at which point I'll do another build.
