Lifecycle doesn't really have much to do with it but the sheer amount of 
effort required to maintain a accurate compatibility matrix without a 
associated test suite is just too high to be doing this manually.

Smolt allows anyone to submit their hardware profile, rate it and 
document anything to do with their hardware including workarounds, 
additional drivers etc in the smolt wiki. Efforts like these are 
probably more effective.
