Re: lack of tg3 in kernel -- please contact Broadcom

* Alex Perry 

| Why can't we have a package that's called
|     kernel-source-2.6.2-nonfree
| as well as the existing one
|     kernel-source-2.6.2
| that are both automatically generated from the upstream
| and placed into the main and non-free portions of our servers?

Because the firmware blobs are likely GPL violations and therefore
completely undistributable.

Please ask on -legal about this, I don't want to see this discussion
here as well..
