OpenFWWF and Fedora (please look at the review request...)



I've recently obtained a Dell Mini 10, which comes with the BCM4312
LP-PHY. Now, I know it can't work until the LP stuff is worked out,
but instead I've been looking at the firmware situation.

I knew the firmware was non-free. I didn't know there was a free
re-implementation called OpenFWWF. So, yum search OpenFWWF. This
turned up nothing. Google was more helpful. A package, waiting to be
reviewed for Fedora (with no comment) for over three months. This made
me sad.

The bug is here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=490892

I've not got the legal or technical understanding to approve or reject
this, so help wanted. I'm offering beer as a reward.

Thanks,

Richard.
