There are some open questions to how to get a new kernel module into Fedora, once this proposal is accepted. Who will decide whether a new kernel module will be accepted as a patch for the kernel rpm? Will there be a guideline on how to add a kernel module as a patch to the kernel rpm? How will proposed kernel modules be reviewed / decided, whether or not it is good enough to be included in the kernel rpm? Regards, Till
