Current status


We need to add as much wireless firmware as possible to Fedora.

Usage cases/rationale

For every wireless card we support and can get firmware to, we should work to make it included so things work out of the box. Because... well, we shouldn't have to explain this.


Requires chasing down firmware, chasing down lawyers about any license issues, and adding packages.

Test Plan

Get test hardware that requires firmware; make sure it comes up cleanly on boot.
