Re: Rules for adding new network drivers?

Are there any particular rules when deciding if a new network driver

et driver (Agere ET1310/ET1301) originally written by Sepherosa Ziehau
for DragonFly [1] and ported to OpenBSD by Jonathan Gray [2].

Would this driver be considered for inclusion even when its current
vendor (LSI) now dubs it as a "legacy product"? [3]

Being obsolete never stopped NetBSD supporting it. Some would say it was quite the opposite!
