Bug#917824: possible to have debian buster alpha iso's with non-free firmwares

Package: debian-cd
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,
Would it be possible to have debian buster alpha iso's with non-free firmware.
I did see https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/buster_di_alpha4/amd64/iso-cd/

But it arguably would be better if we also have the alpha CD's with
non-free firmwar.e

It doesn't make sense especially if there are no wireless drivers
(broadcom etc.) and people have to hunt for them and the dependency

It would be especially useful if it was netinst.iso itself so we would
have something minimum to connect with the mirrors otherwise you are
stuck to trying an ethernet line, connector to connect with the web,
try to download the driver packages and any dependency hell in case
something is/was needed and is not there in the .iso.
