Package: firmware-linux-nonfree
Version: 20160824-1
Followup-For: Bug #522415

Dear Maintainer,

FWIW I also think that having the meta packages bring in as many
firmware packages as possible can be useful.

I would put the dependency in the firmware-linux-nonfree package rather
than in the top-level package, but it's fine either way.

The fact that firmware-amd-graphics is installed automatically but other
firmware packages are not is rather asymmetric.

Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
