Good morning,

I noticed on http://intellinuxwireless.org/index.php?n=Downloads that
you have Archlinux and our packages listed. I just wanted to update you
on our status:

1) You have links to our ftp directory, which doesn't really make sense,
as no Archlinux user downloads the packages there - they are
automatically downloaded by our package manager pacman once an
installation is requested, and they are available in the addons/
directory when downloading the installation iso. So you should rather
provide links to our homepage.

2) There are now iwlwifi packages in our repos. This is a list with
updated links:

driver: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/4197/ (our kernel package)
firmware: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/10815/

driver: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/4197/ (our kernel package)
firmware: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/10816/

driver: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/10884/
ucode: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/10886/
daemon: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/10887/

mac80211: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/4197/ (our kernel package)

driver: http://www.archlinux.org/packages/13157/
ucode (3945): http://www.archlinux.org/packages/13158/
ucode (4965): http://www.archlinux.org/packages/13159/

3) We would like to distribute your firmware/daemon packages (the ones
above) on our installation CDs (or maybe DVDs) in the future. Are there
any licensing issues we need to consider?

Thanks for your efforts and good night
Thomas Bächer
