Comment 112 for bug 379313

Thanks Chase. It sounds like support on the open source has some blockers, so for this bug report let's focus on the nwfermi driver.

@djp, thanks for posting the .debs. It appears this contains a GPL'd kernel driver installable via dkms, and a closed binary nwfermi_daemon which is invoked using udev. Can you specify what the distribution terms are for nwfermi_daemon? Is it permissible for us to package and ship it in Ubuntu as a closed source driver?

Because this driver does not depend on anything particular on the X side, I guess xserver-xorg-input-evdev is not the best component for it to be filed against, but I'm not certain of what package would be better (linux?) so will leave it here for now.
