Bug#1030189: Let regular users know need to put non-free-firmware in sources.list
The average user will not notice his firmware is not updating any more.
Some users, if they do
$ apt-show-versions |grep 'No available version in archive'
firmware-amd-graphics:all 20221214-3 installed: No available version in archive
firmware-brcm80211:all 20221214-3 installed: No available version in archive...
And if they check
will notice something funny happened...
So he must do Google Search.
which leads to
...a new repository component non-free-firmware...
So that means he needs to add it to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
Yes, he should be regularly subscribed to debian-user, but that's too
Or https://lists.debian.org/debian-announce/, but that's too many boring
Yes, he uses apt-listchanges, but that won't tell him this.
So I'm saying that Debian needs a mechanism to have his computer tell
him to do this.
Maybe the next time he uses apt*, somehow the system should tell him...
