Comment 1 Josh Boyer 2012-08-20 09:54:45 EDT
The linux-firmware package only ships firmware contained in the upstream linux-firmware git repository (or firmware heading there very soon).  That firmware isn't included upstream.

There was a review for the bluez-firmware package originally and it was found the licensing of the firmware is not compatible with Fedora's firmware rules.  Unfortunately, we cannot provide that.
