Why in the world would we do that when we have all that’s needed to
simply move the firmware images to non-free?

The only decision pending is whether we should delay the release to fix
this issue. Current discussions on -devel are mostly about why the
situation is as is, and how to interact with manufacturers.

So please go away with the kind of ideas that simply say “fuck off” to
our users.
