Future of linux-image-grsec-* packages


Since the announce of grsecurity to go to a complete non-free (as in
beer) model (see https://grsecurity.net/passing_the_baton.php), I was
wondering if there is any future for those packages.

I am really grateful for the maintainer who did this. This is a great
job, since it allowed me to easily switch to a hardened kernel without
pain. However, it seems that no upgrade will ever be available in Debian.

For now, it is not a real issue, as I can stick to the latest release
(4.9.18 as of
https://packages.debian.org/sid/linux-image-4.9.0-2-grsec-amd64). But if
there is more information on that, I'll be glad to hear it.

Please CC me, I am not subscribed on this Debian list.
