tim, thanks for your answer. any idea when this package is going to show up?

also i am not sure i fully understand exactly what ubuntu is doing with LBM
and compat-wireless. it seems that the compat-wireless packages are
available for lucid (, but
not for maverick ( and not
for natty. i would expect that it would be consistent, so I might not be
looking at the right place. is there any wiki/blueprint that describes how
you handle this?

in the very short term, i would like to quickly package compat-wireless for
a 10.10 OMAP based project, so is there any source package that you would
recommend us to start with?

and yes, that would be nice if you could create LBM for arm ;-)
