Default Bug#475490: Please switch to ISC licence

Package: firmware-ralink
Version: 0.10
Severity: wishlist

It would be nice to have this package in main. It looks like this could be
switched to the ISC licence as OpenBSD uses for distribution or ral and rum
firmwares:
http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/~checkout~/src/sys/dev/microcode/

I only checked whether rt2661.bin and rt73.bin seemed to match, respectively,
ral and rum's microcode.h-s. I don't know if there are several versions of
the firmwares. If there are, my visual inspection was insufficient and we'd
need to compile their microcode.h (AFAIK, Ralink doesn't distribute the
firmwares directly for Linux under the ISC licence - I must say this is
strange if the firmware is the same). I could do that but I don't have any
Ralink device requiring firmware to test the result. Of course, I could check
if they're identical.
