frinnstim looking through the linux-firmware repo and oh my its messy19:38
frinnstthere are ~60 different licenses in the root dir19:40
frinnstall licences grant free distribution rights afaik19:41
frinnstas long as you include the license with the distributed files19:41
frinnstsplitting out different types of firmware to different packages would be pretty simple to do *today* but would require us to track new additions pretty closely19:42
frinnstsince they are just dumped in the tree without any subdirs telling you what kind of hardware the firmware is for19:43
frinnstit could be easily checked on though, if someone with enough interest would be willing to do it19:43
frinnstim not keen on it at all, myself :)19:43
frinnsti'd rather just ship a single port with all the firmware19:44
frinnsthttps://git.kernel.org/cgit/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git/tree/19:44
frinnstdiskspace cost of the entire repo would be ~140mb in /lib/firmware19:46
