Since this device driver is currently available as third-party open
source, I have a couple of questions.
David, I assume you don't intend to sign a Sun Contributor Agreement and
contribute this code - but rather, you would like the available
published code picked up, tested, etc. and integrated into a
consolidation. Is that correct?
If my assumptions are correct, question for the request-sponsor alias:
would this be better as a new project or part of some existing project
in the Device Driver community? Or should an RFE be filed for the new
functionality and this be done as a contribution?
I'm ok either way - just wondering which is simpler/more efficient since
an inbound review will be needed.
