Bug#412848: bcm5700-source: remove from debian ?

Package: bcm5700-source
Version: 8.2.18-2
Severity: wishlist


It might be a good idea to remove this package from Debian:

- it wasn't included in etch because of grave bug #390429

- the tg3 driver in the vanilla kernel seems to perfectly replace it

- upstream (Broadcom) doesn't seem to provide it anymore, nor support
  it, and directs users to the tg3 driver instead.

Thank you,
