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,

There's an active maintainer for the package, only he didn't get his packages 
uploaded to Debian, that's why the version in Debian seemed unmaintained. 
I'll sponsor Markus if necessary. I see no reason to remove this package when 
there's still demand for it.
