I'm really enthused to see this happening. I actually planned to put
something like this together, then saw the announcement on FWN.

Anyway. I'd like to see this go beyond just hardware - I'd like to take
the user of a newly installed system immediately to a page identifying
their specific system, any known errata, and the like. It'll take some
work to go from a list of devices to inversely mapping that to the
machine in use, which vendor, where to get the errata information from
the vendor, and all of that. I'll share some of my ideas with you.

Jon.
