Subject: Add r8192u_usb (aka rtl8192u) firmware
Date: Mon, 05 Jul 2010 13:35:45 +0100
Package: firmware-nonfree
Version: 0.25
Severity: wishlist

The firmware for RTL8192U as embedded in the r8192u_usb driver (and
subsequently removed) does not have a proper licence statement.  We
need to get a licence for binary redistribution, as we have for the
other RTL8192 variants.
