Why not do it like the current Changelog, put it in the kernel repository,
and make sure it hits all the mirrors. A little selective advertising (eg:
someone mention it on slashdot, newsforge, debianplanet, etc), and people
will start using it. Just suffix the file with the version number, just
like the Changelog. Because the file will be small, it's possible that some
mirrors will get quick updates before they get the kernel itself. This
covers all the version specific problems at least.
