Start working, once we have the repo set up! ;)

Probably as others have said we should focus on stable! But nothing stops us
from uploading snapshots of the unstable one to experimental, for brave people
to try! ;)
BTW: with the kernel we have a problem... Both the kernel team and the security
team don't want to support many kernels in one distribution, and are trying to
unify them! Uploading a new kernel source is not going to make them happy! So
what should we do? If only xen had merged with the kernel we wouldn't be having
this trouble now... But since they have not... Any suggestions?
Oh, another thing: for now everybody is using the tls.disabled hack, which has
the big disadvantage of being lost every time glibc is upgraded... Should we
have xen-friendly glibc inside debian, so to make upgrades painless?
