I've asked (using their qualcomm-cdmatech-support portal) for an official 
release of their WiFi firmware with all gathered bugfixes via 
linux-firmware.git. I got statements that the ath10k firmware is no longer 
supported + ath11k firmware is not developed further. But for some of them it 
is possible to request a release of the firmwares via Kalle's repositories. 
But also that Kalle's repositories are now replaced. Which seems to be 
confirmed by Kalle's statement [1] regarding the firmware-N.bin files on 
ath12k at .

The new positions for firmware files were not revealed but I found a couple of 
places [2,3,4,5] in my search.

And to the request to get the latest versions released via linux-firmware.git 
(or maybe even only in Kalle's repositories), I got (some weeks ago) the 
answer "Let me check with our team.".

It is rather hard to make statements about Qualcomm  - simply because it is 
not just a single person and I have no idea about the internal structures. But 
it doesn't seem to be the highest priority (for the "internal team"?) to make 
fixes available for everyone. I still hope that it is just delayed due to some 
unfortunate circumstances. But this is just the current state.

Kind regards,
