I fully agree with that we need more structured documentation about what is working, in which versions and with which details. I'm editing in the FreeBSD Wiki the webcam compatibility list and I know that editing Wiki pages can be a mess and is not what every user who got something to work, or to know, is wanting to do. What we do need is somekind of database with a webform by which everybody could insert (or even edit) exsisting data, ofc with somekind of creation of account and an anti-SPAM capcha. Without this, the data actualization depends on the time and availibility of the maintainer(s) of the page and information tends to be outdated.
