I made a new source package available here:
        http://openvswitch.org/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=corekeeper;a=summary

I haven't changed the architecture yet, though, because I'm not quite
sure what to do.  corekeeper is completely architecture independent
(it's only shell scripts) but it only works on Linux.  I can't use "all"
as the architecture, because it only works on Linux, but "linux-any"
will cause the package to be needlessly rebuilt on each GNU/Linux
architecture.  "linux-all" would seem to be what I want, but it isn't
valid.  Should I just use "linux-any"?

Thanks,

Ben.
