Not Fedora specific but considering that this has been a long standing 
issue, we couldn't solve immediately without non-free bits, this is very 
good news.

"When kernel developers talk about problematic hardware vendors, Atheros 
often appears near the top of their lists. So this announcement from 
Luis Rodriguez, a developer of the reverse-engineered ath5k driver, is 
intriguing: "I write to you to inform you that I have decided to join 
Atheros as a full time employee, as a Software Engineer, to help them 
with their goals and mission to get every device of Atheros supported 
upstream in the Linux kernel." What will come of this remains to be 
seen, but if it truly signals a change of heart at Atheros (and isn't a 
late April 1 posting), it is a most welcome development. "
