  1. Bug#504668: firmware-nonfree: Add License handler in gencontrol.py

    Package: firmware-nonfree
    Severity: normal
    Tags: patch

    The two patches attaches allow gencontrol.py to handle licenses
    in a way that complies with ipw2100 and ipw2200 firmware license.

    The patch links.diff implements a "links" entry in the firmware's
    define file. That entry is a list of source:target that is used
    by gencontrol.py to generate ./debian/firmware-foobar.links

    The patch license.diff implements license=[required|no-preseed]
    and license_name entry in the firmware's define file.
    When used, those fields are used to generate a preinst script
    that present the license to the user.
    If license=no-preseed, then the license acceptation can't be
    accepted by using Debconf preseeding (!).

    Note: If one gets the firmware-ipw2100 packages, then copy it on a usb
    key to provide the package to Debian-Installer (when DI detects the Wifi
    card), then the "preinst" script isn't displayed.

    Which means that the license isn't "accepted". This behaviour shouldn't
    be a problem for ipw2100/ipw2200, since the license's FAQ handle this
    case (see Bug #504671 and 449235)

    No need to do it this way, just add a file in the debian dir.

    This patch is not acceptable, will take a look.
