The Election Committee
The last few days I've been trying to install a broadcom-wl package from 2 different home repos for my newly installed Macbook Air 2015.
However I keep getting the same error while installing, as the kernel version from the broadcom-wl package does not match the installed kernel.
Leap 15.4 Alpha: 5.14.21-150400.3.3.x86_64
OBS and PBS: 5.14.21-150400.6.2.x86_64
Why is there a difference between these kernels? Also can we expect an update for the kernel to version xx6.2?

admins for that repository?
Thank you in advance.
