[aur-general] rt2860: proposed addition to community repository

I would like to propose the addition of the AUR package rt2860 to the
community repo.

It contains the wireless drivers for the rt2860 chipsets, which come
with all of Asus EEE PCs. This chipset is supported in the Arch
install media but not in an actual fresh installation. In addition,
there is no option to install it during an Arch install.
Unfortunately, this means that those of us who do not have Ethernet
connections available to us during installtime have no way of actually
getting this card to work. As the package currently has 41 votes, I
strongly recommend its inclusion in the community repo.

If there are any TUs who would like to take this up, please do so.
This package is hardly updated so it really shouldn't be too much of a

Thanks in advance,
