ROMs category suggestion
 
I've got a few ROMs to add to the tree and some which are already in
the tree if people have a suggestion where they should live. Short
list:

ipxe
openbios
seabios
sgabios
vgabios

May be sys-firmware? =)

If we make sys-firmware we might want to move the various Intel, Ralink
and AMD firmware blobs there as well.

+1

These packages are currently scattered all over the tree: sys-apps,
sys-kernel, media-tv, net-wireless, and x11-drivers (maybe more).

And for those who wonder if it's worth it: it is, for people like me who
tries to run all over the tree, as then I know what to expect out of
sys-firmware failures...

The problem is not finding them, is knowing what's going on when a given
package name is merged.

Well, what I meant is that all these packages have a "-ucode" or
"-firmware" suffix (not sure whether there is a difference), and there
is also microcode-data, which stands separately (as you probably
remember from bug #403119). I am not against a sys-firmware category,
just pointing out that there is not much information gained in the
package name, whereas some information will be lost (type of firmware
— wireless, graphics, etc.).
