Subject: [gentoo-dev-announce] net-wireless/ipw3945{,d} needs your help
Date: Sun, 09 Sep 2007 09:53:43
As some of you may know, I'm the sole (well, seemant is supposed to help 
too :P) maintainer of the above package. The problem with it is simply that 
it's closed source (at least the regulatory daemon and the ucode).

The package itself is hopefully going away when iwl3945 is finally useable. 
Until then, this package _still_ needs someone who is willing going to 
maintain it. I already fixed most of the bugs in bugzilla, but it still needs 
some more work.

I haven't had hardware in the first place, and only took it over from Hendrik 
(brix). So unless someone steps up in the next week or so, this package is 
going to get reassigned to maintainer-needed since I absolutely have _ZERO_ 
interest in maintaining it any longer.
