I have no relationship with the wmi-client package nor knows the
mainteiner. To agree with your opinion, i should work close to that
mantainer and this could make the work a lot harder in the mean that i
have to commnuicate with him.
My work is in get just the selected hardware data from the Windows host
and whis is another "layer" of the "how" the communication runs.
Ok, the shell script is small and simple, but this is a simple task :)
I would to hear others opinions about your opinion.
