    v39 v40  
    120120 * Adding entry in AboutSystem
    121121
    122 ==== Firmware for iprowifi2100 and iprowifi2200 ====
     122==== Proposed handling of group 1 ====
    123123 * Main issue is that the license requires that end users are taking notice of the license before using the firmware. [[BR]]
    124124   * Colin, mmadia discussed the topic on distributing the firmware along with Haiku. Based on the [http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/?n=faq&s=license#license_1 3 bullets] we are consensing that distributing and using the firmware out of the box is feasible. But it would require that the Haiku Installer includes a notion about the respective Intel firmware license.
     125   * TODO: How to handle the live cd case, where there is no installer triggered.
     126
     127==== Proposed handling of group 2 ====
     128 * Just stick to common license rules and every thing is fine.
     129
     130==== Proposed handling of group 3 ====
     131 * Main issue is that redistribution is forbidden. The proposed solution is to download and install the firmware once Haiku has booted. A script automating this process will be included in Haiku.
     132 * TODO: How to trigger execution of this script? manual vs. automatic triggering
