+FIRMWARE:
+=========
+
+We create our own firmware package, which includes the firmware for
+all proxmox-ve kernels. So far this include
+
+pve-kernel-2.6.18
+pve-kernel-2.6.24
+pve-kernel-2.6.32
+
+We use 'find-firmware.pl' to extract lists of required firmeware
+files.  The script 'assemble-firmware.pl' is used to read those lists
+and copy the files from various source directory into a target
+directory.
+
+We do not include firmeware for some wireless HW when there is a
+separate debian package for that, for example:
+
+zd1211-firmware
+atmel-firmware
+bluez-firmware
