So from my PoV, feel free to drop WiMAX support.

Probably worth pointing out, here in Australia there's been a move to
get better Internet coverage in rural areas using fixed-wireless broadband.

There's talk of that being based on "WiMAX 2", so there could be more
demand for WiMAX support in Linux in the future.

I forgot to add, that we never enabled WiMaX support in Debianc since
a/ the WiMaX SDK hasn't been packaged yet for Debian
b/ there simply has been no demand so far. I vaguely remember one single
bug report [1]. And this one was rather: I have a wimax0 device, but NM
does not know what to do with it.



Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
