[Bug 1289857] Re: offer build in trusty


> this report is considered closed.

My intention is to open a discussion about providing more than one
binary package for closed-source drivers, but you have made quite clear
that this is not wanted here. I regret this decision.

You received this bug notification because you are a member of Kernel
Packages, which is subscribed to bcmwl in Ubuntu.

  offer build in trusty

Status in “bcmwl” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  As opposed to open-source software, proprietary software has the USP
  that newer versions are not always better. This seems to be the case
  for the driver which offers considerably worse
  performance for many users than its predecessor This
  assumption is based on the reactions
  <https://plus.google.com/+NickGroenen/posts/HF828QcPK6k> to
  instructions for a "forthport" of to saucy

  Please continue to provide older BCM packages in the tree to make it
  easier for users to switch.
