>> Hi Ralph,
>> I'm a member of CentOS forum and I've tracked problems laptop users are having with Broadcom's wireless hardware (namely, the one(s) in the subject).
>> Under the circumstances, I had to install one of these myself back in August, which I did - after doing some googleing. Shortly after, NedSlider considered compiling the driver for ELrepo, but gave up after reviewing Broadcom's software license. Meanwhile, I've noticed quite a few people having problems with installation of this particular driver, but usually asking for help due to lack of a comprehensive manual, and thats just on forum and mailing list.
>> The point:
>> I've written a manual (hopefully comprehensive one), and would like to publish it on CentOS Wiki pages (CentOS on Laptops, in particular). I've already discussed this issue with Alan Bartlett, and both he and Phil (NedSlider) expressed their support. Alan also refered you as the man I should send this request to along with my Wiki login name, so you could eventually escalate my privileges on CentOS Wiki.

Hmm. Having checked the mail archives, I can't find Milos' original
message to the m/l. Guess I'd better delete the reference to a
Germanic beer festival . . .
I suppose I have seen Milos' message because he CC'd it to me.
