Package: firmware-iwlwifi
Version: 0.12
Severity: wishlist

Intel recently released the 5000-series wireless cards (I have a 5300);
it would be nice if you could include the firmware for these so we would
not need to install them separately.

The firmware is available fron, as usual.. here
is a link to the current version:
