Smolt - a better hardware database

OpenSuse recently adopted Smolt as their hardware database tool.

Shouldn't Ubuntu follow their example?

There have been a few specs about creating a better hardware database
for Ubuntu but none of them succeded.

Smolt is much more mature now, it's open, and it's already used by 2
major distros (Fedora, Suse)

There is also a patch that adds Ubuntu support
But it might be outdated by now.

Can anyone finally package Smolt for Ubuntu and make Ubuntu use it in
place of our old hwdb/hwtest tool?
