Re: non-free firmware: driver in main or contrib?

Yes, Marco.  We all understand the model you propose, based around the
idea "all firmware is essentially hardware, even if it's clearly a
file that has to be there on disk for a driver to function".  An
equally valid model has been proposed around the idea that all
software is software, and anything that can't be touched from software
is hardware.

I think you need to not so much convince others your model is the sole
right model as that it is a more attractive model, in a free software
sense, than theirs.

So far, your ranting and insults  have done little to convince me.
