fwiw (frankly, not very much at the moment) i've also been working on a
hardware detection library. i know of lothar and have been following it's
development. However, my goal has been to come up with a system that is
perhaps more compatible with Debian. Failing that, at least I hope to
provide an alternative for people to choose from.

Details will be showing up at http://detection.on.openprojects.net/ soon
(i.e. when opn is fully back on line). If anyone has any
suggestions/comments on how I should proceed, please let me know. I have
been away for a bit and haven't followed up on all the developments in
Debian recently, though from the archives I've seen some pretty interesting
discussions on configuration management and other projects (boot floppies,
etc) that I hope I can help with more in the coming few months.
