Does it make sense to start a collection on free firmware? One can

If we add some info of firmware for hardware entries on, then the two wikis can link to each other: hardware entries on h-node
can link to firmware entries on FSD and vice versa. :)

What do you think?

I think this is a good idea. Having the two wikis interlinked will bring more attention to both. I am not sure a new collection is necessary (at this time). After looking at the current Collections, it seems we need to do a little house cleaning (and hone the purpose of collections) before we create more. If a specific h-node hardware runs on a free firmware, then that firmware should be vetted, added to the FSD, and linked from h-node with a link (in the description?) to h-node from the
FSD entry. Example: <>



To H-node:

"free driver used:*ath9k_htc*" -

Could state this in addition: "Depends on non-Linux driver/firmware:
[ ]

Thanks for the links. Shouldn't we use the "open-ath9k-htc-firmware" name for the fsd firmware entry since that is the name of the project appearing on its repo <>?
