Nice. But well: It sound like yet-another-hardware-compatibility-list to
me. Thus I'm wondering: Don't we have enough of those already? You link
to several yourself on
So why yet another approach? Why not co-operate with one of those? Or
wait, let's do it even better: Try to work together with all of those
those and solve the problem once and for all *properly* and in a general
way? Read that as: cooperate with at least Novell/Opensuse, Debian and
Ubuntu and maybe get OSDL ^w TLF on board (from the start of).
There have been several Hardware Compatibility lists from vendors and
other projects in the past, but most of them were limited in one
aspect or another - so we start our own.
Is that reason really good enough? And how do you make sure your
approach is not "limited in one aspect or another" in the end, too? If
so many other projects did it wrong I'd say this effort will either need
a lot of work and manpower or it will run into similar problems.
Although the project is hosted under Fedora we're aiming it to be very
distribution independant, so supporting other distributions should be
easy to do.
Why don't we get then on the board *from the start* of?
