Sorry just this right now, my gmail filters are new and didn't pick up
on this until now. Will take a closer look tomorrow in the morning but
one comment so far. I see you have managed to split up the packages,
Ubuntu currently ships just one package. Since I take it is ideal for
Ubuntu/Debian to ship the same package will Debian's have to replace
Ubuntu's? If so I think this is possible if both packages supersede
the Ubuntu wirleess-crda package, I forget the keyword used on
debian/control for that.

Tim, is it too late to make any changes for Lucid? Debian will be
shiping 2.6.32, would be nice if Debian's package was synched with
Ubuntu for both releases on 2.6.32.

Luis - Lucid is well past the point where I can make big packaging
changes. I'm quite happy with the way CRDA/regdb works and am
comfortable relying on John's key to prove regulatory sanity.
