Uttered Max Kanat-Alexander <max_list(a)fedorafaq.org>, spake thus:
I still actually think that the solution to the HCL problem is the
"Fedora Hardware Project" that I proposed eons and eons ago, but I never
actually got around to working on. I think the original spec is still up
at my (now very old) site:
Basically, it makes an sort of "unofficial" HCL through participation
of the Fedora community. I think it's a very Fedora-like solution.
I think a Wiki-like page somewhere that lets contributors record
their experiences with particular hardware would be helpful. I agree
with you, this is best handled as a non-official project.
