As it is a non-critical issue and our policy has moved to get things
into stable, and we told everyone that we won't take things that are
not that critical only through stable, I think the distribution list
is just fine. We will see whether this comes back in a bit of time
Ike, probably the thing to note here is, that we should not spend

linux-backports-modules-wireless (that should be our first question to
ask in problem reports). That written, I must add that I meant wireless
problems in Karmic. If someone is reporting against Lucid that is
