iw package (Was: [RFH] Debian 2.6.32 CONFIG_WIRELESS_OLD_REGULATORY, wireless-regdb and crda)


> BTW -- while we're on the topic of 2.6.32 and the next Debian release,

	Description: tool for configuring Linux wireless devices
	 This package contains the `iw' tool which allows you to configure and show
	 information about wireless networking.
	 In the future iw will become the canonical command line tool for wireless
	 configuration and iwconfig/wireless-tools will no longer be required. See
	 /usr/share/doc/iw/README.Debian for a more detailed overview of iw.
	Homepage: http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Documentation/iw
	Tag: implemented-in::c, network::configuration, role::program, use::configuring

so it exists, but for now this isn't installed by default.
