    77== Brief History == 
    88 
    9 The original author of !MadWifi is Sam Leffler.  He still maintains and improves the FreeBSD driver for Atheros cards and supplies the !MadWifi project with the HAL binaries. By the beginning of 2005, however, Sam [http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.madwifi.user/5897/focus=5897 decided] to leave !MadWifi. At that time, some volunteers stepped up trying to keep development going on. The development process was opened up, inviting other developers to join the effort of improving one of the most advanced 802.11 drivers that is available for Linux. The (yet informal) ''madwifi.org project'' was born.

    1818 
    19 The primary goals of the madwifi.org project are coordinating development of the Atheros drivers for Linux (!MadWifi and ath5k) and providing support for the end users these drivers. The project should coordinate the driver development by deciding upon a project roadmap, discussing and agreeing on project milestones, announcing and discussing changes to the drivers and so on.
