Hey firmware gods,
a) Three "latest" firmwares
b) Sorting out the firmware upgrade pages

2) http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Template:Latest_Releases/firmware (which
shows up in the green "Latest Releases" box on many pages) displays
_Firmware_: Q2E12 (2008-07-29)
3) http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Upgrading_firmware has instructions to
upgrade to q2d14.
It seems q2d14 is the latest signed firmware. Perhaps
Template:Latest_Releases/firmware should only list the latest signed
stable firmware, as its _Firmware_ links to the Firmware page that lists
all available firmware, latest (unsigned) first. Do you agree?
== Sorting out the firmware upgrade pages ==
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Upgrading_firmware is for the general public.
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Firmware and the pages for each firmware
release are for developers.
I rewrote them to
* Discourage users from upgrading firmware, and just tell them to
upgrade to the latest stable release which usually delivers new firmware.
* Refer developers to the Firmware page and then to each firmware's page
for developer instructions.
I hope that's OK.

There's also http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Upgrading_the_firmware.
==> Is that page obsolete now that each firmware's page transcludes
Thanks, go Forth and prosper
