    It sure sounds like a good idea… I would encourage you to post that to some of the debian mailing lists. Or maybe you could work on setting up such a thing yourself…

    Wow, I love this boards. I get both -1 and Insightful. Someone doesn’t like my opinion, and mods it down so other people who want to share intelligent opinions won’t even see it unless they’re looking for it.

    I wonder, truly, what problems people have with my assertions, if they have valid counterarguments, and if not, what their proposals would be.

    Possibly even a central list compiled from a cat /proc/pci for all? users installing debian with the correct install iunformation for those devices would be a great start

    A lot of what you describe can and should be addressed in policy. That’s what makes our packages work so well. Please consider joining the policy lists and talk about this!
