I'd agree with that approach.  Given that udev-142 requires util-linux-ng
>= 2.15 and the latest hal also requires the same, it makes sense to hold off
until util-linux-ng & e2fsprogs release stable versions that play well

I have a patch for #2401 in my local working copy.  I've submitted a
patch upstream for #2337, so I'm more than happy to just wait for a new
release of kbd.  It's a pretty trivial issue.

I'll take ownership for the package upgrade tickets I currently have
patches for.  Other than that, feel free to take on anything you fancy.
I'm hoping to have my patches committed tomorrow, if not Sunday.
