So, to turn this discussion into a real change:
debian-www team: what do you think about adding some more hint/warning
banners pointing to firmware-including installation images?
We already have one at
So we could also add it to other pages (and re-use the translations as well):
Of course it's not optimal to be forced to add it to so many pages,
but the restructuring of the download / "getting-debian" section is
already on the agenda, so in the long term we can hopefully reduce the amount
of pages with that warning back to a low number like 2 or 3?
The above is for stable.
We could also do similar for the testing firmware-including images
(that's probably the more important part, since there is no mention of such
images at all on the website).
Should I try to work out a proposal/patch?
Or is there another plan for these issues already?
