I have an old winmodem not working in Linux. It there
a chance that it is made
working if I make a bugreport? Note that the production stopped about 10
years ago and the manufacturer did not disclose the specifications.
yes, this is a very good question. We had long time ago a discussion
about for how long a time a hardware have to be supported. ATM nobody
wanted to make a hard limit. May be we should say: "no harware older
than 10 years" will ever be supported, if it works, so good, if it
don't work change it.
this can be rude, but it's clear. I would support such thing.
* is it usefull to report a bug for the previous (supported) version,
id it's not a security bug - (11.2)?
* what is the manpower to give to the present version (now 11.3, next
week 11.4) and what part to give to the future (factory)?
* how many bugs are not fixed yet, and if the answer is bigger than a
handfull, why ask for more?
May be it could be usefull to have a clear answer (we all, openSUSE
community) of what we need on the subject.
