Hmm. Is the release already so close that it's time to have this
flamewar again? Shouldn't we wait a month or two for maximal effect? 

Seriously speaking, to me it seems very clear that non-free firmware
will not be present on official installer images. Then again, the
installer team has made it very easy to inject firmware during
installation on machines where it's needed.

I can't see anything else that would need to be done here, and I'd
prefer not having to vote about it if at all possible.
