We need both for certain, however after two years for a particular card not to
be taken up should have already been talen care of in 11.2 or 11.3. Then we

How hard is it to adapt the realtek source the driver is there just needs
adapting or packaging.

or mailing list and have somebody answer *now*, let alone because the
problem is temporary

more organisation. priorities.

I'm sure that if after discussion we decided to say "all the wifi
hardware *must* work out of the box" and popularize this widely, we
