The hardware module is probably the weakest area of this site. Rather than auto uploading, it may be better to open up hardware for commenting and discussion.
It would be nice to for example to see a piece of hardware that doesn't work having a work around posted to that hardware.
Additionally, should I post a pice of hardware and someone else post a piece of hardware that is the same, it would be better if they linked somehow.
Unfortuantely, I don't think these will be simple changes :(
A headquarters has the time to manually analyze thousands of descriptions of the normal operation of devices?
And there is time to provide the user with information about potentially problematic its new configuration?
So this requires automation.
Sudo lshw and send information to headquarters.
+1 More automation. That's what computers are for.
