SubjectRe: [PATCH] gigaset: stop maintaining seperately
From: Paul Bolle <>

> The Dutch consumer grade ISDN network will be shut down on September 1,
> 2019. This means I'll be converted to some sort of VOIP shortly. At that
> point it would be unwise to try to maintain the gigaset driver, even for
> odd fixes as I do. So I'll stop maintaining it as a seperate driver and
> bump support to CAPI in staging. De facto this means the driver will be
> unmaintained, since no-one seems to be working on CAPI.
> I've lighty tested the hardware specific modules of this driver (bas-gigaset,
> ser-gigaset, and usb-gigaset) for v5.3-rc1. The basic functionality appears to
> be working. It's unclear whether anyone still cares. I'm aware of only one
> person sort of using the driver a few years ago.
> Thanks to Karsten Keil for the ISDN subsystems gigaset was using (I4L and
> CAPI). And many thanks to Hansjoerg Lipp and Tilman Schmidt for writing and
> upstreaming this driver.
