andy-tracking kernel?

I've seen a lot of references to the "andy-tracking" kernel.  A search
of archives yields some info about this with regard to a shift to the
2.6.27 kernel.  However, I've not been able to really understand what's
in it, or what the current state of the kernel is.

Would someone mind elaborating a little on a few points:

1.  Is this generally available?  If so, where?

2.  I'm currently running Debian with the stock kernel that gets put in
place by the script.  Can I use this kernel with Debian?
There are caveats on the Debian pages about using other kernel, so has
anyone used this with Debian successfully?

3.  What do I get with it?  What is at risk?

Thanks... I apologize if this info is out there somewhere, but I have
spent a significant amount of time digging through past threads, and I'm
just not getting a complete picture.
