  Thank you for your constructive work in this area.
Looking at your packages, I've a question. I see one package per firmware
without version number in the package name.
  Do you think about a way to have different kernels that each requires
different firmware versions (for the same hardware) ?
It seems to me that this problem is not addressed by current firmware-*
package (packages already in Debian and your new ones), unless it is
expected that firmware packages will change their name. However, I think
this is a problem we must take into account for long term support.
  Just to clarify, I see your work as an improvement (ie I do not see my
question as reason to delay the merge of your work)
