Re: ralinktech (rt2500) drivers in kernel?

Intel ipw drivers were included in the fedora kernel even before they were
merged upstream.

Which was repeatedly mentioned as a major pain point. While we can make specific exceptions there should be a good rationale behind such efforts.

Maybe if fedora merges such drivers, it will be easier to
get them merged upstream?

If distribution add features as patches, that can very well reduce the incentive for the developers to ever push for upstream inclusion. The original developers would have to be interested in merging and maintaining it within the kernel. It would be much better to get the discussion going in the linux kernel mailing list.
