Fedora maintainers are currently reviewing zd1211rw firmware for 
possible inclusion into the repository provided that the established 
requirements [1] are met. Anyone have comments on the requirements?

If I remember correctly, Zydas gave permission for redistribution of its 
zd1211 firmware; if so is it still valid under the new ownership 

[1] Requirements:

   1. The files are non-executable (note: this means that the files
      cannot run on their own, not that they are just chmod -x)
   2. The files are not libraries.
   3. The files are standalone, not embedded in executable or library code.
   4. Explicit permission is given by the owner to freely redistribute
      without restrictions (this permission must be included, in
      "writing", with the files in the packaging)
   5. The files must be necessary for the functionality of open source
      code being included in Fedora.

The License tag for any firmware that disallows modification should be 
set to: "Redistributable, no modification permitted"

Firmware packages should be named <foo>-firmware, where <foo> is the 
driver or other hardware component that the firmware is for.
