I never said that b43 is unmaintained. It is definitely getting much
more than "odd fixes".

If Stefano isn't maintaining it, who is?

We are working on that.

Well, there are some developers working on the driver and there
are some developers that do not actively work on the driver but used
to work on it in the past (that includes me). Neither of them is an
official maintainer (yet). I used to be a maintainer, but I dropped
my official MAINTAINERS file entry, because I do not actively work
on b43 anymore. However, I still read the patches going into the driver
and comment on them as appropriate.
So well. I think b43 does not have a maintainer. But it's
not unmaintained. There are lots of people working on it. I don't think
an official maintainer is needed. Patches are sent directly to John
(the wireless maintainer) and the b43 development crew reviews them.
There's no problem with that.

Greetings Michael.
