Dear all,

I have a query, how is stretch being released without multiple bugs
fixed for wpagui and wpasupplicant, I had a look at the stretch
announcement notes as well as the serious and grave bugs filed against
wpagui and wpasupplicant i.e.

b1 - #849122 - With 2.6-2 i dont have the wifi adapter in the
(network-manager) list available
b2 - #849077 - wpasupplicant: [Regression] Updating wpasupplicant
makes not possible to connect to encrypted WiFi
 b3 - #849875 - broadcom-sta-dkms: Wifi association took too long,
failing activation

While some of the bugs is related to broadcom only chipsets, other bug
could be hit by anyone. So unless there are packages which can take
place of wpagui and wpasupplicant and these packages can be removed
then please inform users.

Or at the very least warn them through stretch announcement as to what
they should do otherwise users having broadcom chips would be in for a
very nasty surprise when upgrading.

Maybe some of the experts could weigh in and make a proper message
about the above bugs situation.

Till later.
