I wish I understood the reasoning here - putting aside the fact that most of the software in Debian is under a copyleft licence and so we *must* provide the source. Why is the source for the radio on my wifi card any *less* critical than the source for the driver for my wifi card? And please, no handwaving about 'different' or 'its hardware enablement'. And if the answer reduces down to 'firmware is made by proprietary vendors and does something many people need and we don't have a replacement yet' - well thats fine, but at various points we didn't have a free kernel, or a free libc, or a free graphic desktop environment. -Rob -- GPG key available at: <http://www.robertcollins.net/keys.txt>.
