Recently I have been surprised that alsa-firmware package is not
available in debian repository, this package contains firmware for
professional sound cards
( RME's multiface and digiface, emu, digigram, echoaudio etc.)
Distribution like Ubuntu, 64Studio, Fedora, Arch linux provide these
in their repos.
I contacted pkg-alsa-devel and from answer came out that firmware
binaries probably should be shipped in linux-firmware like in Ubuntu.
Discussion I started on debian kernel mailing list :
Maybe Debian Multimedia Team can get involved, it would be nice to
have support for these sound cards out of box.
