Whiteboard

It would be nice to consider exposing the information in the hwdb in a more palatable interface than strictly an API. The only alternative right now are the HardwareSupport section under the ubuntu wiki:

  https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupport

And under the Hardware section in the community help wiki:

  https://help.ubuntu.com/community

Instead, perhaps we could create a cron to mine the relevant data from the hwdb and programmatically generate the corresponding hardware pages in one of the above locations.
