Maybe the argument Foxboron was trying to make, is that it seemed
useless to him -- not strictly a duplicate.

Because admittedly, non-dkms packages for kernel modules does not seem
to be especially useful in the AUR. They're primarily useful as binary
packages in some hosted repo.

I don't really object to having the PKGBUILD in the repos anyway, as the
source for a binary repository, however, we currently have *two*
versions, this and wireguard-module, neither of which would be the name
I would choose (I would choose "wireguard").

Even though yours came first, it isn't getting updated for new
core/linux releases.


BTW, see how I independently implemented community/broadcom-wl.
